Q. What is Directional Drilling?

A. Is a trenchless process whereby a series of rods are ‘piloted’ into the ground and guided along a bore path with electronical tracking equipment providing real time roll, pitch, depth and azimuth information. The rods can be directed left, right, up and down to ensure line and grace accuracy. At the conclusion of the pilot bore, the bore path is enlarged by a reaming process. The carrier pipe is then pulled back once the reams have prepared the soil to except the carrier pipe.
