Directional drilling is used to install conduit under obstacles such as roads, buildings, and wetlands. As demonstrated in this video, conduit such as water, sewer, fiber, electric, and gas can be installed under very busy intersections without disruption of traffic. A small area is needed to set up the equipment. This area can be strategically placed away from congestion and business activities.

Auger Boring (aka Jack and Bore) is also known as dry boring because unlike other methods of boring, no slurry is generated.

During auger boring, a cutting head with a slightly larger diameter than the casing pipe excavates the soil just in front of the casing. The helical rotating auger blades carry the soil back to the machine where it is removed either by hand or machine. The auger boring machine runs along a track which is aligned with the casing pipe where it has to be installed. After the machine finishes the assigned track, the machine is disconnected and the auger assembly is brought back to the starting point where a new casing segment is welded to the previously installed casing. The process is continued until the entire pipeline is completed.
