Directional Drilling 2018 Market Size, Share, Insight Analysis | Industry Upcoming Trend Report Forecast 2023

Market Highlights:-

Directional drilling is an essential practice carried out by crude oil producers to reach the harshest wells and optimizing the production from the resource land. Typically the well is drilled vertically down in the land which is more prone to the risk of nonproduction and is economically infeasible. The directional drilling provides the solution for drilling of oil wells at multiple angles other than vertical angle and help reach better reserves of oil and gas. Despite the advancements in technology, directional drilling has been the prime area of interest for oil upstream players because of the applications involving this technique, which include drilling at more than one angles in the fields, recovering oil and gas from the untapped source.Furthermore, the process allows the drilling of multiple wells from the parent wellbore, which helps diminish the environmental impacts of drilling. With its advantages in both, onshore and offshore well drilling, directional drilling hold significance in oilfield service business.

According to a recent study report published by the Market Research Future, The global market of directional drilling is booming and expected to gain prominence over the forecast period. The global directional drilling market is forecasted to demonstrate an exponential growth by 2027, surpassing its previous growth records in terms of value with a whooping, CAGR during the estimated period (2018 – 2027).
