Horizontal Boring

Horizontal Boring

Drilling and pipelining is an industry that is continually evolving. New processes, procedures, and technological breakthroughs contribute to the constant development of directional drilling. Companies must be on the cutting edge of these developments in order to succeed. Southeast Directional Drilling is a leading directional drilling company with many years experience working on major drilling projects.

Over the years, what is known as directional drilling has become the industry standard. Directional drilling has become the accepted drilling method because of its reduced environmental impact and potential cost savings. Directional drilling is used when gas, water, sewer, or other pipelines need to be installed. Directional drilling allows companies like Southeast to install pipelines with as little environmental impact as possible.

Horizontal boring allows drillers to achieve maximum depth below any obstacles without disturbing the surface environment. Horizontal boring can be done in just about any soil type or climate. Gravel, hard rock, cobble, dirt, volcanic rock, clay, and all soil types in between are prime candidates for horizontal boring and directional drilling services.
