About us

GA Drilling is a high-tech company developing and commercializing a groundbreaking technology platform PLASMABIT. Our technology enables massive time and cost savings compared to relevant existing drilling technologies and opens up vast new possibilities in oil & gas, geothermal energy, mining and tunneling.

Subscale field prototype and all components of our core technology have been already demonstrated in drilling and casing milling. Our team of 70+ professionals has successfully accomplished the first ever plasma milling underwater and the first ever plasma milling in HP/HT environment. First applications are under preparation for onshore and offshore field tests in a short time period.

The first of PLASMABIT applications is particularly addressed to Oil and Gas industry, which faces challenges, such as hard rock drilling, exponential cost growth across the board or raising the level of O&G structures that need to be decommissioned. The initial full product for oil &gas segment to be brought to market in 2019.
