New Perspectives on Horizontal Wells for Assessment and Remediation
Sometimes remediation technologies can be established but not prevalent, however; they can still be subject to the forces of change. In some cases, creative economics can open up new uses, but also process improvements can drive new applications in traditional settings. This is what is happening with the deployment of horizontal wells for site assessment and remediation. In essence, decreasing costs tied to design innovations, as well as strategic shifts which can initiate greater flexibility in deployment, are two factors that have brought about a resurgence of interest horizontal well systems (HWSs). The latter is specifically tied to moving from monolithic single well systems, that are subject to preferential flow path distortions, to segmented, nested well systems.
