The job began as a relatively straightforward directionally drilled creek crossing to install 600 feet of steel gas pipe. However, a change in the size of pipe, unexpected site restrictions, difficult soil conditions, and limited hours to work made this project far from routine.

It was exactly the type of project suited for California contractor Accu-Bore Directional Drilling, a horizontal directional drilling contractor that also provides engineering services and complete turnkey and design-build capabilities.

It’s trite but true: The only thing constant is change. Especially in our industry, it seems. There’s always a new technology or tool to consider or a proposed regulation to ponder. Access to capital restricts and relaxes. Individual rig or well performance can vary widely.
