Horizontal drilling

Horizontal drilling. For the installation of conduits under obstacles on a straight line trajectory.

Horizontal drilling makes it possible to install conduits under obstacles, regardless of the nature of the soil or rock. A rotating drilling head is used to pierce and reduce the rock (or sail) into cuttings. Before beginning this type of drilling, an entry pit and an exit pit must be dug to the required depth. It should be noted that it is possible to drill at a required slope, but it is impossible to perform a curved trajectory (as it can be done with directional drilling).


Expertise and state-of-the-art equipment to conduct all types of horizontal drilling jobs.

We have the necessary equipment to conduct horizontal drilling in all types of soil and rock. Whether the job requires a traditional rotating drilling head or a down the hole hammer, our qualified staff is capable of getting your drilling project done:

  • Even if the soil contains stones or blocks normally impenetrable with traditional methods
  • In soft ground, cohesive or rock regardless of the category of rock to be drilled;
  • We have drilled involving diameters up to 1675 mm (66in) and lengths up to 100 meters (330 feet) and we are ready to meet new challenges.

Many possible applications of horizontal drilling.

We have completed many horizontal drilling projects for the installation of conduits for gas, water mains, electricity, sewers and optics fibers, going under various obstacles such as:

  • Roads and highways
  • Railroads
  • Rivers
  • Rugged terrain
  • Buildings
  • Etc

Important: Before any project is begun, exploration boreholes and a complete geotechnical investigation must be conducted so that we can evaluate all possible difficulties and determine the drilling trajectory. Contact us for more information.
