What is Horizontal Drilling?
The basic goal of horizontal drilling is to deliberately shift the path of a well from running vertically to running horizontally. A well’s path can be shifted from many existing positions, including upwards and back from the surface.
This is something that needs to be done on many building sites and we are here to help to get it done right. By allowing the experts to do the job, you can be sure the well is directed exactly where it needs to go so that the rest of the work on the site can proceed as normal.
Benefits of Horizontal Drilling
There are a number of benefits you can expect from horizontal drilling. One of the biggest is that you can use it to avoid a work site that is sensitive environmentally or that is operationally difficult.
It can also help reduce overall costs at the drill site. It’s also beneficial for creating an offshore well that’s connected to a site onshore. Horizontal drilling also enhances gas and oil production by exposing more of both to the wellbore. Finally, horizontal drilling reduces surface impact because you can create several different wells from several directions all from one location above ground.
How Horizontal Drilling on the Sunshine Coast is Done
We have many experts on staff who are trained and experienced with horizontal drilling so be sure to let us help you. Our knowledgeable technicians will steer the well path by mounting a rotary drilling device on the drill pipe. From the surface, the technician will steer the device so that the drill bit is directed exactly where it needs to go. This enables us to deviate the well path in any direction you need it to go. Our methods are very precise and we can direct wells that are many kilometres deep to within centimetres of the target you’ve designated.
