4 Calculations to Help Improve Your Directional Drilling in Wells There are several known computational methods that could help you improve your directional drilling. When drilling directional wells for construction and contractor firms, surveys are often taken at regular time intervals to determine the present downward location of the directional drilling with comparison to the surface location. The key to making successful calculations lies in noting down the inclination at the survey point for particular survey depths. This will help you calculate the North-South and East-West coordinates using relevant mathematical calculations. Listed are four commonly used calculations that will help you improve your directional drilling in wells. 1. Tangential method This method is used to calculate the straight line representing the wellbore that passes all the way through the lower end of the well’s course length. Before making this calculation,
