Directional Drilling Applications

  • Water & Sewer
    • Alternative trenchless construction to minimize surface interruption, home disturbance and traffic effects.
  • Telecommunications
    • Economic, cost-effective solutions for telecommunications cable and duct installation with minimal surface damage.
  • Rock & River Boring
    • Highly efficient rocking tools to install a wide range of utility pipelines in various crossings under all kinds of subsurface circumstances.
  • Hydro-Excavating
    • Non-destructive excavation procedure with high-pressure water for soil-loosening that securely exposes subterranean utilities for drilling.


Directional drilling is the smart option for “hard-to-reach” targets with a number of benefits:

  • Increasing the exposed section length to the target through an angled approach
  • Garnering access to targets where a direct or vertical approach is not possible or is prohibitively difficult
  • Getting to your target depth more quickly, allowing the team to avoid difficult to drill natural formations
  • Minimally disrupting to the surface of the project
  • Cost-effective

With the smart use of technology, directional drilling is the simplest, lowest-impact solution to several probelms.
