Directional Drilling for Pipelines
Before any pipeline rehabilitation can take place, the condition must first be assessed. Using a camera attachment with our directional drilling equipment, we can assess the condition of the pipeline in real time.
Using the method of sliplining, we are able to pull a new HDPE pipe into the existing pipe. The pipe is then butt-welded into continuous lengths before it is inserted into the launch pit, thus eliminating the need for excavation. We can then improve structural stability by grouting the pipe in place, thus increasing the HDPE pipe pressure rating.
General Directional Drilling Service in Kitchener
HDD or horizontal directional drilling which involves drilling an arc underneath structures to install pipes or conduits in urbanized areas. HDD requires expert planning in order to maintain the integrity of the lagoons, rivers, railway lines, highways and other structures under which the pipe construction will take place.
The first step in the process involves drilling the pilot hole, and then enlarging it. Anta Directional Drilling has completed numerous HDD projects in and around Kitchener and surrounding areas in Ontario and has the expertise to operate in a wide range of weather and ground conditions.
Bentonite drilling fluid helps to keep the borehole open throughout the process, until the pipeline, pipe sleeves or conduits are installed.
Horizontal directional drilling offers many advantages over traditional trenching methods, including:
- quick, economical and accurate drilling
- ability to reach sufficient depths in order to avoid damage to existing utilities
- minimal disruption to ground level operations
- small construction footprint
