Benefits of Angle Drilling - Overcoming surface obstacles

In my many years of experience, I have learned that there are lots of benefits to drilling holes at an angle when it comes to geothermal projects. The first advantage is having the ability to overcome surface obstructions. Quite often you find yourself in situations where you’re drilling in such tight spaces, that vertical drilling becomes impractical or even impossible. In these situations, angle drilling is the best solution to deliver your client the most optimal geothermal. infrastructure development, while minimizing disruption and maximizing efficiency.

In the following animation, we  show some examples of surface obstacles and how we would accomplish an efficient geothermal project using angle drilling. As previously mentioned there are many benefits to angle drilling and we’ll be exploring all of them as we further this educational series.
