One Shot Directional Drilling Australia | The Horizontal Directional Drilling Specialists

Directional boring, commonly called horizontal directional drilling or HDD, is a steerable trenchless method of installing underground pipe, conduit, or cables in a shallow arc along a prescribed bore path by using a surface-launched drilling rig. 

Directional drilling is used when trenching or excavating is not practical or too expensive. It is suitable for a variety of soil conditions and jobs including road, landscape, and river crossings.


What are the Advantages of Horizontal Directional Drilling?

  • It is used for crossing waterways, roadways, shore approaches and congested or environmentally sensitive areas where other trenching methods are not possible
  • Less traffic and public disruption as there is no need to close roads like traditional open cut methods
  • Minimal impact on job site
  • Faster than open cut trenching
  • More cost effective than traditional trenching methods
  • No removal of trees/vegetation along bore
  • Ability to undertake projects in confined spaces
  • Fewer delays in unfavourable weather conditions
  • Ideal for sites sensitive to surface disruptions

What is Rock Drilling?

In the past, the presence of rock prevented the use of horizontal directional drilling (HDD) for most underground utility construction. Drilling in rock required large drill rigs with mud motors together with costly support equipment to run them. Recent developments in HDD technologies now allow midsize drilling equipment to effectively drill and steer through rock. 

    Contractors must remember, however, drilling in rock is not just switching to rock tooling and proceeding. Drilling rock requires:

    • Experience
    • Planning
    • Correct Equipment / Tooling
    • Patience
    • Persistence

    With over 24 years’ experience in the directional drilling industry, One Shot Directional Drilling Australia Pty Ltd offers both the expertise and equipment to penetrate tough ground conditions.


      One Shot Directional Drilling Australia | The Non-Destructive Digging Experts

      Non-Destructive Digging (NDD) has become the preferred method of excavation within the construction industry. By safely breaking up soil using air or water, the risk of damage to underground utilities is vastly reduced, when compared to manual or mechanical digging methods.

      This process requires less backfill, labour and restoration and can safely expose existing underground services without causing unnecessary damage.

      NDD services can be conducted near and around – water networks, telecommunications, power or gas lines with minimal risk and without any potential damage to these underground assets.

      Vacuum excavation services include:

      • Non-destructive locating of underground utilities / services
      • Digging trenches
      • Removal of drilling slurry, mud and / or water
