Directional Drilling

Also described as slant drilling is a form of drilling horizontally rather than a vertical shaft. It’s used in both the oilfield and utility industries to steer the drill bit to reach a desired point. This technique is used for installing horizontal pipelines under roads, underwater and through rock, often as a conduit for fiber optic lines, utility, and power lines.  Alpha Pipe can help with all of your steel casing required for Directional Drilling projects.

Road Bore Casing / Horizontal Casing

Road Bore Casing, also know as Horizontal Casing, is used to encase and protect utility lines, cable and pipelines and to keep the shaft from collapsing while boring under roads and rivers. There are several methods of installing steel pipe casing: open cut casing- when a trench is dug and the steel pipe casing is then laid within the trench; boring- in which a boring machine is used to cut a horizontal hole into which the bore pipe casing is then installed; and HDD (horizontal directional drilling)- when a drilling system is used to create a hole and the casing pipe is then pulled or pushed through it.  Alpha Pipe can help with all of your steel casing pipe needs, whether it is road bore casing, open cut casing or or horizontal directional drilling casing.

Open Cut Casing

This pipe is more or less the same as road bore casing, but is installed into an open trench and then covered.  Call Alpha Pipe for all of your steel casing pipe needs.

Vertical Casing Pipe

Casing pipe is used for both oil and gas wells and water well applications and provides a steel pipe casing for the drill pipe and bit. After the drilling is completed, the steel pipe casing remains in place to allow for the tubing to be installed so the oil, case or waster can be extracted. This is also known as “conductor hole” ,“rat hole”, or “mouse hole” pipe.  Alpha Pipe is your go-to steel pipe casing supplier for all of your rat hole casing needs.
