What Is Pipeline Directional Boring?

Directional boring is a trenchless method of installing oil and natural gas pipelines underground along a predetermined bore path. The directional drilling system allows for the placement of oil and gas pipeline with minimal disturbance or disruption along the ground surface. With pipeline directional boring, obstacles like sidewalks, driveways, parking lots, roads and highways are easily bypassed reducing the direct and indirect costs of oil and gas pipeline trenching.

The Advantages Of Directional Boring Oil and Gas Pipelines

In addition to preserving the integrity of the landscape surrounding oil and gas pipelines, directional boring has additional benefits:

Pipelines can be installed in curved or straight lines to avoid surface and subsurface obstacles.

The pipeline boring process can be much quicker than traditional trenching methods and requires fewer workers, making it less expensive in most cases.

Directional boring can be used to drill under roads, buildings, creeks and rivers.

Directional boring is a less noisy and more environmentally friendly process than traditional methods.

While we can directional drill oil and gas pipeline transmission and distribution lines to residential gas line bores, our drilling fleet and crews are best suited for medium to large oil and natural gas pipeline, compressor and pumping station boring projects including midstream pipeline construction (steel and poly pipe; 2
