No Project Too Big Or Too Small
We’ve performed drill shots in excess of 5,200 LF and have installed pipe up to 54” in diameter. Our cross-trained crews are adept at working with HDPE, PVC, DIP and steel pipe materials. DBE’s drilling endeavors support our other vertical segments when the technology is required, particularly subaqueous water crossings. Our company deploys substantial capital in technology, equipment and workforce talent to keep us at the forefront of our industry. We operate a fleet of 12 drill rigs with pull-back capacity up to 440,000 lbs. and all ancillary support equipment.
In addition to constructing pipelines, our company also builds lift/pump stations, regulator/meter stations, manholes, gravity systems & low-pressure vacuum sewers.
We install short and long-side services for water and natural gas up to the meter and are capable of up to 15,000 LF per week of production capacity.

What is Directional Boring?
Directional boring, commonly called horizontal directional drilling or HDD, is a steerable trenchless method of installing underground pipes, conduits and cables in a shallow arc along a prescribed bore path by using a surface-launched drilling rig, with minimal impact on the surrounding area.
What are the benefits of using HDD (trenchless technology)?
Trenchless technology is widely used for the installation or replacement of ducts and pipes for services, especially beneath rivers, canals, railways and busy roads. They are used in cities, parks, forests and places where the depth of installation makes the techniques more economical than open trench installation.
