In order to plan a directional well that can be drilled safely and be cost effective, a great deal of information is needed by the directional company. By reviewing the information and requirements the best plan can be selected that will meet everyone's needs and produce a usable wellbore. The planning of a directional well can involve multiple disciplines and their needs must be successfully combined into the wellpath proposal. Obviously not all wells require input from each division but the more complex the well is the more important a synergy is developed within the departments and with the directional drilling company.
