Horizontal Directional Drilling

  • RPB Industries offers precision directional drilling services throughout Western Canada and Alberta and is a leading provider of horizontal directional drilling. Horizontal directional drilling, commonly referred to as HDD or trenchless, avoids man-made and natural surface obstacles. It is the preferred method of installation for pipelines and other utilities. With HDD drilling, it is possible to drill under roadways, river crossings, and mountainous regions with less equipment at a lower cost

    There are several benefits to HDD drilling, some of these include:

    • Lower costs and increased productivity when compared to traditional trench drilling.
    • There is substantially less noise and pollution from HDD drilling.
    • Drilling below an obstacle decreases surface disruption.
    • HDD drilling minimizes above-ground construction intrusions.
    • Adverse weather conditional generally do not affect progress.
    • Water pumping from trenches is no longer necessary.
