A few 35 years in the past i used to be a little bit precariously balanced in a drilling derrick aligning a whipstock right into a directional gap in North Holland through the Stokenbury process, and doubtless pondering to myself that i used to be on the very leading edge of know-how. in the course of the intervening interval it has turn into visible to many people that the most major technical advances within the oil enterprise were made in drilling, and especially within the fields of offshore and directional drilling. It has additionally turn into obvious that the standard of the technical literature describing those advances has no longer stored speed with that of the advances themselves mostly. a selected evident instance of this has been within the box of directional drilling the place a wide literature hole has existed for a few years. i'm overjoyed to work out this hole now jam-packed with the current quantity by way of my buddy Tom Inglis. certainly it is just after interpreting his finished e-book that I realize the level of my very own lack of expertise of the newest thoughts of directional drilling and the way fascinating it was once to have an authoritative textual content at the topic. i think definite that this quantity should be welcomed by way of the and warmly suggest it to all who're in anyway concerned and drawn to the interesting international of drilling.

The original whipstock was probably a wedge-shaped piece of wood that was dropped down on top of the fish. When the bit was lowered down the hole the tapered side of the wedge deflected the bit away from the fish. A new section of hole could then be drilled at a slight angle to the vertical. Whipstocks were later used to kick-off directional wells with the aid of directional surveying instruments to check the orientation of the tapered edge. The direction in which the tapered edge was facing became known as the "toolface".
