What is Directional Drilling?
Directional Drilling is the process of
directing a wellbore along some trajectory
to a predetermined target.
Basically it refers to drilling in a non-vertical
direction. Even “vertical” hole sometimes
require directional drilling techniques.
Examples: Slanted holes, high angle holes (far from vertical), and Horizontal holes.
