The single greatest technological development that has made the production of oil and gas from shale economically feasible is the ability to deviate vertical boreholes into horizontal laterals, extending 10,000 ft or more. Numerous problems were overcome to allow cementing, perforating and radial distribution of multiple horizontal laterals from a single vertical well.
