About this Report

This report is intended to assist buyers of directional drilling services. Directional drilling involves drilling at an angle to take measurements, hit targets and stimulate reservoirs. This method of drilling allows extractors to obtain resources from multiple adjacent reservoirs. These evaluation services aid in reservoir engineering, well placement and mining resource mapping. Directional drilling services benefit buyers because they reach targets that cannot be reached otherwise, while improving well productivity in a fractured reservoir and minimizing the well's environmental impact. This report does not cover oil well fishing services or horizontal drilling services.
