Information about Badger Explorer ASA

The Badger Explorer is a revolutionary new method/device to explore for and map the extent of hydrocarbon resources. The Badger Explorer drills and buries itself into the underground, carrying a full package of logging sensors, at a substantial lower risk, cost and complexity of utilising an expensive drilling rig.

The tool penetrates the sea bed and the underground by using a mechanical drill bit driven by an electrical motor to loosen and crush the formation ahead of the tool. The crushed formation is transported through the device and deposited in the void behind the tool and the excess volume forced and injected into the formation through fractures generated by the Badger Explorer.

The tool carries an electrical cable, which is spooled up inside the unit, connected to the surface and powers the electrical motors. The same cable is used for continous transfer of data back to the surface.
