Here’s Why Businesses Prefer Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD)

Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) remains one of the most popular methods of trenchless technologies. This form of drilling entails drilling various wells through a gas or oil-bearing rock, at angles from a vertical well hole. This form of drilling is also used in installing conduits and utility pipelines. Directional drilling is used primarily in making crossings under roads, rivers and other existing structures. Its main purpose is to install conduits and pipes aiding transportation of various fluids and materials. Taking the above into account, it’s easy to see why horizontal directional drilling (HDD) remains such a popular option. It’s a great way to get materials from one point to another, without the need to destroy any existing infrastructure that may stand in between the two points. Horizontal directional drilling also goes beyond conventional trenching. It connects services and utilities in place that would otherwise be unable to connected using traditional trenching.Using this method allows you to lay the foundations needed to transport materials underground, without the need to destroy or damage existing infrastructure. This is just one of the many reasons behind horizontal directional drilling’s popularity in South Africa. Of course, there are many other reasons why it makes sense to opt for this form of drilling.
