USR Drilling
Exceptional Expertise

USR Drilling is the oil and gas industry’s sole and exclusive provider of Ultra Short Radius Drilling (USRD) and Completion Technologies. Management, Engineering and Drilling personnel possess, on average, more than 25 years of experience with USRD, beginning in the late 1980s with early development and testing of the initial prototype tools.

Our expertise is the re-entry of existing wellbores to exploit bypassed reserves in mature fields. Our proprietary well-intervention technologies were specifically designed to exploit remaining reserves, increase production from marginal wells and restore production from shut-in wells.

We are the only directional drilling company that specializes in the planning, drilling and completion of Ultra Short Radius (USR) and Short Radius (SR) wells. Our focus is on the market segment requiring a very tight radius of curvature (27-60 feet) and a slim hole (3 7/8 to 4 1/2 inches).

Drilling Services

USR Drilling Group provides Ultra-Short Radius and Short Radius directional and multi-lateral drilling and re-entry services to oil and gas operators globally. These proprietary well intervention technologies are specifically designed to exploit remaining reserves, increase production from marginal wells, restore production from shut-in wells and reduce water production.
