Advanced Drilling Technologies

Drilling is a unique mechanical process that is designed to bring petroleum oil        hydrocarbons to the surface by making a hole or bore into the earth’s surface. In geotechnical engineering, drilling fluid is used to aid the drilling of boreholes into the earth. Drilling rigs are used not only to identify geologic reservoirs but also to create holes that allow the extraction of oil or natural gas from those reservoirs. Traditionally oil and gas wells are vertically drilled. Technological advancements have allowed operators to save time, reduce operational costs, and lessen their environmental impact. New drilling technologies include the following techniques:

  • Horizontal Drilling
  • Multilateral Drilling
  • Complex Path Drilling
  • Extended Reach Drilling
