Directional Drilling is a popular technique which is widely used in the UK for the installation of pressure pipes (water, rising mains, gas, oil and cement pipelines), electricity and communications cables.
The HDD Process
The HDD process involves the installation of a pilot rod into virgin ground, which is steered from above ground using a tracking device. The head of the pilot rod is eccentrically loaded, so that rotational steering can take place. Once the pilot rods have reached their destination point, the product pipe, usually coiled or welded sticks of pipe, is attached to the front pilot rod. The rig then pulls back the rods, thus pulling back the new pipe, along the line of the pilot rods.
