English term or phrase:well pad
je suis actuellement en train de traduire un texte parlant de forage dans le domaine géothermique. Le mot "well pad" revient à plusieurs reprises dans mon texte, mais je ne sais pas comment le traduire...
Voici les différentes occurrences :
"He took me over to the well pad to release some steam into the atmosphere. "
"We’ve been to the well pad where they hook the well on to actually transport the steam."
A temporary drilling site, usually constructed of local materials such as gravel, shell or even wood. For some long-drilling-duration, deep wells, such as the ultradeep wells of western Oklahoma, or some regulatory jurisdictions such as The Netherlands, pads may be paved with asphalt or concrete. After the drilling operation is over, most of the pad is usually removed or plowed back into the ground.
