Environmental

Directional drilling benefits the environment on any type of project (mineral exploration, oil field, engineering or road projects, etc.).

One great benefit of directional drilling is the ability to reach multiple targets from a single drill collar setup, versus moving the drill to numerous sites to access individual targets. This greatly reduces the footprint and leaves much more of the environment untouched.

Directional drilling can also contribute to the protection of sensitive ecosystems. It provides the ability to locate drill sites away from sensitive areas that should not be disturbed.
