Directional Drilling

Here at W.A. Petrakis we own our own Vermeer 40×55 DR as our drilling equipment. This is a trenchless process that allows for the installation of pipe using this drill. With directional drilling there are little limitations in the terrain that can be worked around.

Advantages of Directional Drilling

Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) is an environmentally friendly process to install pipe underground with minimal excavating required. We are able to install utilities underground in areas where conventional excavating would otherwise be impossible such as a river crossing. It also opens up applications such as installing utilities under heavily trafficked highways.


W.A. Petrakis has been using the method of directional drilling for 2 years. We look forward to completing whatever size project you would have for us.
