deviation

departure of the wellbore from the vertical, measured by the horizontal distance from the rotary table to the target. The amount of deviation is a function of the drift angle and hole depth. The term is sometimes used to indicate the angle from which a bit has deviated from the vertical during drilling. See drift angle.
