This paper briefly describes a range of primarily human-powered technologies for well construction which lie between (in cost, complexity of technology, and capability) hand-digging and ‘conventional’ small or large, truck- or trailer- mounted drilling rigs. These human-powered technologies are designed to construct small diameter wells, at costs closer to hand-digging than to conventional drilling.
