Precession drilling and wellbore placement techniques have yielded significant improvements in oil and gas extraction but in Canada they have not yet been utilized to improve the technical and economic feasibility of deep geothermal energy systems. This talk will review the state of the art in precision directional drilling and discuss how these techniques may decrease the capital cost and increase the operating efficiency of deep geothermal systems in the Canada.
