Advantages and disadvantages

Fracking allows drilling firms to access difficulttoreach resources of oil and gas. In the US it has significantly boosted domestic oil production and driven down gas prices. It is estimated to have offered gas security to the US and Canada for about 100 years, and has presented an opportunity to generate electricity at half the CO2 emissions of coal.

What Is Sonic Drilling? Benefits and Advantages Explained

Sonic drilling works by sending high frequency vibration from the drill head through the drill string (or pipe) to the drill bit. The Sonic Drill Rig Operator can adjust the resonance frequency to suit the type of rock or soil being drilled into (usually to a frequency between 50htz and 150htz). This resonance causes fluidization of the rock or soil at the drill surface.

Directional Drilling Disadvantages

Directional Drilling Disadvantages Disadvantages Until the arrival of modern downhole motors and better tools to measure inclination and azimuth of the hole , directional drilling and horizontal drilling was much slower than vertical drilling due to the need to stop regularly and take time consuming surveys, and due to slower progress in drilling itself (lower rate of penetration).

Development and Application of the Downhole Drilling

Downhole tools based on this energy include downhole motor drilling bit, downhole motor rotary percussion drilling bit, and laser drilling tools. Energy transmitted by cable has three advantages. First, the energy is not subjected to well depth or drilling fluid.

Drill hole location and collar surveying TeTeW

The most widely used magnetic downhole survey techniques are: singleshot instruments, which are capable of one survey per trip into the drill hole. A singleshot instrument is preferred for directional drilling when successive surveys enable periodic corrections to the direction of the drill hole
