Global Directional Drilling Market Overview

Directional drilling is an important approach practiced by crude oil manufacturers to reach the toughest wells and optimizing the production from the resource land. Usually, the well is drilled vertically down in the area which is economically infeasible and more inclined to the risk of nonproduction. The directional drilling offers solution for drilling of oil wells at different angles other than vertical angle and assists in reaching better reserves of oil and gas. In spite of the progress in technology, directional drilling has been the key area of interest for oil upstream players owing to the applications involving this procedure. It includes drilling at more than one angle in the fields, obtaining oil and gas from the untapped source. Additionally, the technique facilitates the drilling of multiple wells from the parent wellbore, which aids in diminishing the negative environmental influences of drilling. With its benefits in both, offshore and onshore well drilling, directional drilling hold importance in oilfield service business.

Innovations in oil and gas sector collectively with shale activities and surging demand for fuel and energy from the developing economies complementing from surged urbanization and globalization are the key drivers of directional drilling market. Trenchless Engineering Services Pvt. Ltd. installed horizontal direction drill in 2015. It was done for a gas pipeline, which was laid to a depth of 140 meters beneath the surface level. However, the low-price trends have restricted the projects for directional drilling. Several projects were paused, which are estimated to initiate with recovering oil prices. Gas and oil directional drilling industry are estimated to have huge potential from rising projects over the forecast period. This rise is due to the augmented production from the end use sector coupled with increasing shale revolution. The market is also likely to experience high developmental activities brought in by major players and multinationals.
