Exploratory Drilling

Science / Geology / Exploratory Drilling: Drilling done to locate mineral deposits in an area where little subsurface data about those minerals is available. Exploratory wells may not have the ability to produce the minerals if they are discovered.

Leverage Drilling

Entertainment / Bowling / Leverage Drilling: A method of drilling the ball so that it tends to skid farther and finish harder (go long .. hit hard). A balance hole is needed to bring the ball back into compliance with ABC rules in such a drillin MORE

Drilling Arrangement

Science / Geology / Drilling Arrangement: A contractual agreement under which a mineral rights owner or lessee assigns a fractional interest in a property to another party. This assignment might be done for financial support of exploration an MORE

Developmental Drilling

Science / Geology / Developmental Drilling: Drilling done to delineate the boundaries of a known mineral deposit or to evaluate the deposit in advance of production. MORE

Directional Drilling

Science / Geology / Directional Drilling: Drilling wells that are deliberately deviated from the vertical to hit a target that is not directly beneath the well site or to penetrate a greater thickness of rock within a productive zone. MORE

Exploration

Science / Geology / Exploration: The work of identifying areas that may contain viable mineral resources. This work can include surface mapping, remote sensing, exploratory drilling, geophysical testing, geochemical testing and other MORE
