Today, wells can be drilled horizontally as well as vertically, beginning miles from the oil and gas they are intended to reach. Extended reach technology allows ExxonMobil to develop long-reach wells that can extend horizontally for miles in the subsurface. By using this technology, previously inaccessible resources can be accessed, often in complex and challenging environments such as the Arctic. Extended reach technology also reduces our environmental footprint.

About

Extended reach technology enables ExxonMobil to develop long-reach wells that can extend horizontally for miles underground.

Environment and safety

Extended reach wells reduce development costs and minimise marine impacts by avoiding the need for additional offshore structures.
