What We Do
In most simplistic terms, we increase the effective drainage size of your wellbore… so you get more hydrocarbons out
and you get them our faster. We do this using our unique radial drilling service– a process that creates a series of radial
drainage tunnels– or Flow Highways™– leading from the payzone back your wellbore. Our Flow Highways™ radiate out from your wellbore at literally 90 degrees—meaning we can hit and stay within pays as thin as 2 ft.
Why We Do It
The O&G industry has long-standing answers for establishing zone to well communications—most notable, Perfs and Fracks.
In situ, Perf’s typically only reach out 1-2 feet; Fracks on the other hand can reach out 000s or even 0,000s of feet.
But there’s a problem– a sort of missing link in the options available to well operators– namely an affordable solution
that reaches the payzone in the critical 50-100 ft range. If the current options were truly satisfactory, why does the
industry plug X,000s of wells every year when less than 25%-- often far less-- of the oil has been recovered? Viper Drill exists to help fill this missing link.
Where It Applies
Our radial drilling service applies to both O&G wells; and, its ‘sweet-spot’ is wells producing between 5-100 BOePD. Our
technology has drilled sandstones, carbonates, coals, chalks, cherty-zones, mudstones, unconsolidated layers– heck, it
can even drill granite.
There are 3 primary benefits to our radial drilling service—each of which offers the opportunity for improved hydrocarbon
recovery from your wells. These are:
- Increased communications between the payzone and the wellbore for increased hydrocarbon in-flow;
- Overcoming near wellbore damage or skin that can choke-off O&G production; and,
- Creating new, robust and enduring pathways for adjunctive chemicals/treatments to reach into the target zone
More information about our revolutionary technology—its many application and its benefits can be found on the following
pages. Those familiar with legacy radial jet drilling technologies will also quickly recognize the advantages of Viper
Drill’s mechanical radial drilling service to:
- 1) more reliably cut formations;
- 2) to stay within zone; and,
- 3) to cut harder formations.
