2023 Large Horizontal Directional Drilling Rigs Census

(P&GJ) — When a project calls for horizontal directional drilling (HDD), it’s important to use a qualified contractor and the right equipment for the specific needs, especially when it involves a large rig.

This annual census, compiled by Pipeline & Gas Journal and Underground Infrastructure, serves as a valuable resource in the selection process and, ultimately, project success. 

The most common industry standard for this HDD-rig category is pullback force of at least 100,000 pounds and, in this year’s census, reaches a maximum of 1.8 million pounds. Other relevant statistics include maximum pipe diameter and maximum torque.
