A brief history....

In 2010 Darren co-founded Midland, Texas-based Radial Drilling company, Zero Radius Laterals (ZRL). In 2016 Darren successfully merged ZRL with Coal Bed Methane Innovations (CBMI), of Brisbane Australia, and created V2H International. Darren was the CEO – Director of V2H International.

Darren has been actively involved in the  Radial Jet Drilling industry for over a decade and has deployed Radial Jet Drilling systems on multiple oil & gas wells across the world, including Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma & Australia. Darren has also evaluated international projects  in Mexico, Canada, China, Middle East & Indonesia.

Darren has now established his own consultancy business, focussed on Radial Drilling and the Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) industry. 

During the last decade, Darren was involved in the creation of an Australian Subsidiary,  completing a multi-million dollar capital raise, securing and  deploying commercial contracts with major Australian Oil & Gas operators. In 2017 Darren was instrumental in the award of a $1,000,000 federal government grant, to assist with the commercialisation of Radial Drilling Technology, which was a personal highlight in a long and successful business career.

Darren initiated the establishment of a presence in Canada, forging strong relationships with key individuals, numerous operators and major organizations affiliated with the Oil & Gas industry in Calgary.

Radial Drilling has tremendous potential to revolutionize the Oil & Gas industry and is serviced by several competing technologies such as Viper Drill, Radial Drilling Services, Buckman and V2H. At Radial Drilling Consultants we have a detailed understanding of every system and which ones actually deliver value. Our focus is to provide a range of services to anyone who is interested in this technology and to also independently promote the industry. 

Success with Radial Drilling is a complex equation, where it is essential to match technology that delivers, with wells that meet a specific criteria. Radial Drilling Consultants has a unique insight into the existing systems on the market,  and a comprehensive understanding of the ideal well candidate selection process.
