Directional drilling is an affordable and practical option for connecting utilities by lowering costs, hassle, and eliminating damage. Most often directional drilling is used to cross hard surface areas, finely manicured lots, water bodies, roadways, and railways. Directional drilling limits the total amount of surface area disruption making E&S permits easier to obtain. Additionally, by drilling under existing infrastructure without disturbing the surface, it minimizes restoration costs, increases productivity, lessens roadway closures, and prevents damage to the surrounding environment.
