AMC’s SRU on the DM Civil site.

AMC’s SRU facilitated the early completion of a civil construction project.

Intro, Challenges and Results AMC’s client, DM Civil, experienced delays and loss of productivity as a result of highly dispersive clays overloading their system. Large pumps on equipment in the system exacerbated dispersion of clays in the fluid and significant time was lost dumping fluid and cuttings. Challenge DM Civil […]
