After privatisation, the drilling industry was dominated by a few large firms, often from abroad, who largely forced smaller firms out of the market.

:- '''Lack of skills in the drilling sector'''. This was particularly the case for the few small drilling firms, who lacked technical and business management skills, but for all firms there were few vocational training opportunities, and there was no professional certification system.

:- '''Lack of up-to-date groundwater data'''. Without access to good groundwater data, drillers were limited in their ability to plan and carry out successful borehole drilling. For example, they couldn’t easily identify areas of higher hydrogeological risk (e.g. low permeability aquifers), design and construct suitable boreholes to match hydrogeological conditions, or understand the reasons for water borehole failure..
