Trajectory control in directional drilling

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.
