Q. What kind of equipment is necessary for horizontal drilling?

A. What new wells are planned to be drilled horizontal, the drilling rig is usually employed to drill both the vertical and horizontal portions of the wells. However, depending on the equipment requirements for the curve and lateral sections, a smaller (less costly) workover rig may be moved in after the drilling rig has completed the vertical section.
