Horizontal Drilling Program

Horizontal oil and gas well drilling has become one of the most valuable technologies ever introduced in the business. It is an enhanced oil recovery (EOR) or gas recovery method that is becoming more and more popular as the price per barrel of oil gets higher.

Horizontal oil drilling can be used in many situations where conventional drilling is either impossible or cost prohibitive. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but it should get you thinking about the possibilities of horizontal directional drilling.

  • to efficiently extract soil vapor
  • to identify the causes of decreased well performance
  • to place leak detection sensors beneath solid or hazardous waste landfills
  • to install gas collection systems at landfills or similar waste dumps
  • to stabilizing hillsides for mine waste dumps or other unstable granular soil masses
  • to de-water hillsides where mudslides endanger housing developments
  • to install groundwater collection galleries in shallow aquifers for private or public water supply
  • to convey fluids between vertical wells and treatment facilities
