Time-Tested Advantages of Horizontal Wells

Wells are wells are wells, right? Both conventional vertical wells and directionally drilled horizontal wells have a screened casing that is connected to solid riser casing which leads to the ground surface. Groundwater or soil vapor is drawn through a well screen to remove contaminants. Remediation agents such as air, bioamendmnents or potassium permanganate are injected through a well screen to treat contaminants in situ. This is where the similarities end.

There are some important practical benefits of horizontal wells, independent of the remediation strategy.
