Directional Drilling


“Drill on Target’s collective experience has us drill successful projects and record wells throughout Western Canada.”

Directional and horizontal drilling are popular and successful methods of resource extraction that are known for not only allowing drilling in areas that would normally be inaccessible, but also for being very good for reducing disturbance to surface areas by facilitating the grouping of wellheads for easier long-term maintenance.

Drill on Target’s collective experience

The use of horizontal drilling technology has increased dramatically over the past decade. A horizontally drilled well is defined as a well bore that intersects a potentially productive formation and does not intentionally exit the formation for the remaining footage drilled. This means that the well is spudded like a conventional vertical well, and at a predetermined kick-off point, the well is deviated from the vertical so that the well bore enters the formation roughly parallel to the bedding plane. This ultimately results in greater production with a smaller footprint.

Improvements in drilling technology that lower costs and increase the rate of success in finding and extracting petroleum have a direct benefit to the oil and gas industry in terms of higher energy reserves, stable energy costs, and improved economic competitiveness.
