Oil and gas

Exploring and developing new raw material reservoirs with innovative drilling technologies

To develop oil and gas deposits at great depths safely and efficiently.

________________ Oil and natural gas are used as fuel sources around the world and are still among the most important and indispensable sources of energy.  Our modern industrialized society could hardly exist without them.  Exploring such deep underground energy sources is a demanding challenge. To meet this challenge Herrenknecht offers innovative drilling technologies for drilling companies.

All over the world, oil and gas are transported to consumers through hundreds of kilometers of pipelines, crossing rivers, mountains, roads, residential areas and nature protection zones.  However, the amount of oil and gas burned around the world every year is equivalent to the amount created by nature in approximately one million years. Exploring for new oil and gas deposits is therefore an important investment in our future.

Reaching difficult-to-access regions safely

In the past, energy companies concentrated their activities on easily accessible raw material reserves. This is because they could be developed with relatively little cost and effort. It was usually enough to drill down to the deposit with one borehole. However, the reserves to be explored in the future are mostly situated in difficult-to-access areas or in deep sea locations, greatly increasing the demands made on technology and working processes. 

Drilling operations in sensitive surroundings can only be carried out if strict environmental and security standards are adhered to. In addition, the requirements for tapping new resource deposits are becoming ever more complex. Innovative drilling technology is thus vital if exploration is to be feasible. That is why Herrenknecht has developed its Vertical Drilling Rigs which are precisely designed to meet the future demands of the industry.
