The premature shut-In of wells and marginal fields is an increasing problem in the oil and gas production sector. Once a field has been shut-in, in most cases the remaining resources will be abandoned due to the increasingly high cost of re-establishing production of the field.
The main activity is the provision of radial drilling services. These services are contracted directly to the oil and gas industry with the provision of radial drilling systems including technical and operating personnel. The company offers geological and reservoir technical assistance required for the screening and selection of candidate wells that have potential to increase production through application of radial drilling technology.
Stimulate the reservoir 100 meters from the wellbore.
In formation compatible situations, acid may be pumped through the RDS system to displace chemicals evenly over the 100 meters of the lateral. This provides a more even displacement over the length of the lateral. Select Radial Drilling units can pump high volumes of acid at concentrations of up to 28%.
RDS has teamed up with Arc Fluid Technologies, LLC to aid the design of fluids specific to each application. Access to this expertise is a valuable addition to the portfolio of services offered by RDS.

Laterals are designed to enhance conventional methods of reservoir pressure maintenance.
- Directed Water Flood
- Directed CO2 Flood
- Injection Wells
As laterals create additional permeability into the reservoir, the effectiveness of these conventional methods is enhanced. Radial Drilling is designed to create more reservoir exposure. The 100 meter conduits provide a means for greater injectivity beyond what is attainable from traditionally completed wells.
The SureFrac system directs the hydraulic fracture treatment precisely where the operator demands. The RDS laterals are gyro oriented to align most beneficially to the natural stress planes, taking the guess work out of “where the frac actually goes”. This is a major step in giving control of the stimulation treatment back to the operator, where it belongs.
Are you SURE where your FRAC is going?
Radial Drilling is not only a substitue for hydraulic fracturing, but is also a complementary technology. By orienting laterals, we are able to direct your frac in a specific direction and provide 100 meters of conduit before your frac meets resistance from the formation. By directing your frac, you reduce the risks of migrating into unwanted zones and ensure your frac is penetrating deep into your reservoir.
