Vertical Drilling

Vertical drilling is the conventional method of extracting oil and natural gas from within the earth.

As you might guess it differs from directional drilling (horizontal) in that the boring direction never deviates much from a vertical axis. It is less expensive to develop a vertical well but is not nearly as efficient or lucrative because it cannot access reserves that are beneath obstructions and is limited in the amount of “pay zone” it can penetrate.
