Drilling Better, Not Just Faster - Introductory Remarks
Described as trying to hit a target with a baseball bat while dangling from the belly of an airborne airplane, drilling a horizontal well is a spectacular feat. Drillbits that are only a few inches wide must go thousands of feet of rock to reach the reservoir target. It is a feat made possible with advanced materials, skills and technologies working together to drill wells better, not just faster.
