HDD

HORIZONTAL DIRECTIONAL DRILLING

HDD is a trenchless construction method that involves drilling a small pilot hole using technology that allows the drill to be steered and tracked from the surface. The pilot bore is launched from the surface at an angle between 8 and 20 degrees. The bore then levels out when the required depth is reached. A bore path of very gradual curvature or near-straight alignment is normally followed to minimize friction and to stay within the allowable joint deflection and the allowable curve radius for the pipe.
