First UP TIGHT SQUEEZE T his job in July 2014 consisted of drilling six bores to a depth of 400 feet each with 1.25-inch high-density polyethylene loops using a mud rotary top-head drilling rig for a closed-loop geothermal system. The residence is located in the coastal plains region of New Jersey on an oceanfront block in a congested neigh- borhood. The site was space-restricted and the wells were drilled in an area 12 feet wide by 90 feet long. A mud recycling system and vacuum truck were used to control the drilling fluid runoff to neighboring properties. Photo courtesy Robbins Water Service Inc. in Shamong, New Jersey.
