Directional Drilling Technology Invented until the late 1920s, Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD), as it is now known, is a trenchless technology that was originally used in oil fields to increase oil production. In the 1990’s, the horizontal technology was adapted for utility conduit installations.

Today, Horizontal Directional Drilling is widely used. HDD allows for conduit placements underneath obstacles and provides maximum protection while, at the same time, minimizing maintenance costs. HDD is used in three major industries: the oil field, the utility industry, and the environmental remediation industry.

Some of the benefits of utility services installation using directional drilling include:

·         Continuation of normal operation

·         Avoidance of identified infrastructure installations

·         Maintain integrity of roadways, buildings, and natural features

·         Little or no disturbance to wetlands or nature conservators.

·         Minimum site restoration
