HORIZONTAL DIRECTIONAL DRILLING
Horizontal directional drilling is a popular choice for pipe installations when crossing highways, railways, bodies of water, or any other obstacles that pose challenges to traditional open cut.
The process begins with a consultation with the project owner to establish a bore path and determine the required rig size for the pipe length and diameter.
A safety program is then created to identify potential hazards, utility crossings, and methodology for safely completing each task involved.
Once all permits are in place, a pilot bore will be drilled, guided by an experienced steering technician to follow the established bore path.
The hole can then be opened up in stages to the necessary size to pull the product pipe back through.
