Horizontal Directional Drilling

Directional drilling services are useful for the installation of utility lines such as electrical conduit, gas lines, telecommunications, and generally any utility or piping that must be run horizontally through the ground.

Benefits of Directional Drilling

There are quite a few benefits to directional drilling, allowing the installation of infrastructure across waterways, roads, parks, and other areas where alternative means of drilling are not possible. One particularly advantage of horizontal directional drilling is that it allows for the installation of utilities without large scale trench digging operations.

The Process

The entrance and exit of the hole must be exposed and gained access to; this may involve digging a couple of small holes and pits to reclaim fluids depending upon the size of the job. A directional bore machine drives the bore head into the ground at a predetermined angle. Typically, directional drilling machines will make use of a drilling fluid to assist in the process by lubricating and providing other beneficial drilling characteristics, speeding up production and prolonging machine life.
