Horizontal Drilling


Our professional team has specialized experience in the multi frac and horizontal drilling services in both Canada and the U.S. Horizontal wells have become a preferred method of recovering oil and gas from reservoirs in which fluids occupy strata that are horizontal, or nearly so, because it offers greater contact area with the productive zone than vertical wells.

Horizontal oil and gas well drilling has become one of the most valuable technologies introduced in the business.

A horizontal well is commonly defined as any well in which the lower part of the well bore parallels the oil zone. Applications for horizontal wells include the exploitation of thin oil-rim reservoirs, avoidance of drawdown-related problems such as water/gas coning, and extension of wells by means of multiple drain holes.

Horizontal wells have become a preferred method of recovering oil and gas from reservoirs in which these fluids occupy strata that are horizontal, or nearly so, because they offer greater contact area with the productive layer than vertical wells.

Horizontal drilling allows for an increase in the recoverable petroleum in a given formation, and even increases the production in fields previously thought of as marginal or mature. Horizontal drilling also allows for more economical drilling, and less impact on environmentally sensitive areas. In some areas where drilling is not allowed for environmental reasons, it is possible to drill horizontal wells to targeted deposits without harming the environment above.
