What is Horizontal Directional Drilling ?

Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) refers to a trenchless construction method employed for the installation of pipes underground without hampering the ground surface. It involves the usage of a directional drilling machine and various other associated attachments to accurately drill with the chosen bore path and a back ream of the pipe. It is performed by highly trained technicians to manage the drill head and guide the drilling pipe electronically to ensure the angle, depth, and exit point adhere to carefully designed engineering plants. It is significantly more efficient and less disruptive as compared to open-cut methods, which involve the hassle of digging large tracts of earth and removing displaced dirt and slurry. It is performed by drilling a small diameter pilot hole, pre-reaming the pilot hole and enlarging it to a size sufficient to safely incorporate the product lines, and pulling the product pipe into the drill hole. It is ideal wherein trenching requirements need to be avoided, such as under a railroad, an embankment, or a highway. It is a quick and accurate process that allows the operators to accomplish creditable accuracy even when the crossing is complicated. Furthermore, it enables the installation of pipelines under busy city streets and highways without disrupting the flow of traffic and affecting the movement of citizens.
