Directional drilling

A first well bore , called the pilot hole , is guided by means of a probe located at the front of the drill head . The sensor transmits data to a receiver at the surface which transmits the latter to the operator of the drilling machine , which allows it to locate the drill and thereby to guide it. Completion of the pilot hole is reamed to a diameter sufficient to insert the leads to the removal of drill rods. Depending on the diameter of the duct to install , reaming sequences will be performed.

Forage horizontal

Le forage horizontal consiste à foncer une gaine d’acier dans le sol a l’aide soit d’un marteau pneumatique ou d’une foreuse munie d’une tarrière localisée à l’intérieur de la gaine.
