Chemical Oxidation with horizontal wells
A major urban high-rise development project in Annapolis MD required in-situ treatment of dry cleaner solvents. Ten horizontal wells were drilled under an active construction site for potassium permanganate injection. The system was installed in four weeks without disrupting ongoing construction of building and roads. The horizontal well system has successfully injected 1.3 million gallons of oxidant solution. Several injection events occurred while high-rise construction continued at the site.
