Problems
2
Straight hole
Well deviates lt 3 deg. per 100 ft (30m) Cone
with a maximum angle of 5 deg
3
If the bit hits a subsurface rock layer with a
dip greater than 45 deg., the bit tends to be
deflected down dip. If rock layer dip less than
45 deg., the bit tends to be deflected updip.
A well with an excessive angle in it that has not
been drilled on purpose that way is call a
crooked hole.
4
Directional Drilling or Deviation Drilling
Modern rotary rigs can be controlled so that the
well is drilled out at a pre-determined angle
during directional or deviation drilling and ends
up in a pre-determined location called target.
5
Directional Drilling
• Directionally drilled wells will usually be
drilled according to one of three basic hole
patterns.

6
Directional Drilling
• After making an initial deflection from vertical,
the well may be drilled to the target , or
deflected once more to allowed the bottom of the
• hole to be drilled
• vertically
• (double dogleg).

Uses of Directional Drilling

Situation Requiring Directional Drilling
10
Directional Drilling
• The deviation begins when the hole is deflected
using one of several techniques
• (1) downhole hydraulic motors with a
• bent sub
• (2) jet bits
• (3) whipstocks

A steerable downhole assembly is a combination of
stabilizers, bent subs, downhole turbine motor,
and diamond bit that can maintain, drop, or build
angle.
