General Capabilities and Services of Directional Technologies, Inc.
Directional Technologies specializes in Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) and implementing remediation technologies with horizontal wells.
Horizontal Well (Horizontal Remediation Well) Design and Construction Services
Directional Technologies is among a handful of horizontal directional drilling contractors in the world experienced in using horizontal directional drilling technology to install Horizontal Remediation Wells for environmental remediation applications.
Horizontal Well Design
Planning and preliminary consulting to engineers and site managers as they assess the technical appropriateness of horizontal wells. Assistance may include:
- Selecting remediation equipment and horizontal well materials
- Horizontal Well Design
- Constructability review to assist design engine with practical insights for efficient implementation of horizontal well designs
Horizontal Well Construction
On-site planning for proposed bore paths
- Equipment mobilization
- Horizontal Boring
- Screen fabrication and placement
- Horizontal well development
- System startup assistance, performance monitoring, and performance evaluation
- Turnkey design-build remediation
Directional Technologies has installed 1,000s of horizontal wells beneath buildings, active facilities, railroads, highways, airports, wetlands as well as other sensitive areas and infrastructure. In many instances, horizontal remediation wells outperform their vertical counterparts and expedite site cleanup times.
Horizontal soil vapor extraction (SVE) wells, for instance, are instrumental in actively mitigating vapor intrusion and the source area vs. passive mitigation with long-term monitoring. Installing horizontal injection wells for in situ chemical oxidation (ISCO) provides larger coverage area with significantly fewer injection points. Horizontal extraction wells are used for plume control and capture where vertical installations failed in the past.
