Directional drilling is the science of deviating a wellbore along a planned path to a target located a given lateral distance and direction from vertical. This includes drilling as vertically as possible from a given TVD.
Schlumberger offers expert directional drillers and proven technologies to provide the trajectory control needed to drill the well correctly, the high-quality hole required to successfully run and cement casing, and the precise well placement to optimize production and maximize recovery. Schlumberger LWD and MWD services deliver high-quality data to enable time-critical decisions for accurate drilling of extended-reach, horizontal, vertical, and complex directional wells and sidetracks.
Fully rotational steerable systems for highly accurate directional drilling.
Positive displacement motors to meet the challenges of any hole size or drilling operation.
High-power turbodrilling for the longest time on bottom.
Directional drilling services for high-volume and unconventional environments.
Certainty in wellbore position for precise well placement and well avoidance.
Automated rocking motion of the drillstring when sliding to greatly reduce drag and produce a step change in sliding ROP.
