Directional drilling means non-vertical drilling. It is a trenchless method that involves drilling through to create a pathway for a new pipeline, or drilling to reach an existing pipeline. This method is great to avoid certain obstacles that could be in the way. 

Though the two terms are often used interchangeably, directional boring as and horizontal drilling do carry different meanings. Directional boring comes with the word “bore”, which implies a shorter-length bore drill (may be used to drill hundreds of feet long). Horizontal drilling usually implies a longer bore drill (which can be used to drill thousands of feet). Either way, both terms correspond with directional drilling, which is a general word for non-vertical drilling.

  • Versatile process: longer pipes can be inserted through directional boring in deeper ground locations. Compatible materials that can be used to include HDPE, mechanical joint PVC, steel.  
  • Minimal disruption: because this method is a trenchless as well as minimally-disruptive method, with it, a technician can more easily avoid certain obstacles such as tree roots and pre-existing sewer lines.  
  • Cost-efficiency: directional boring cuts costs because it cuts back on the need to do more digging and overall work (when compared to methods such as open trenching, microtunneling, or bore and jack). 
  • Shorter completion time: because this a less-invasive method, it ends up being a time-saver. In addition, it cuts back on the noise created with excavations and trenching.
