Planning and Design of Horizontal Directional Drilling Projects
May 29–31, 2018
The Consortium for Engineered Trenchless Technologies (CETT) and the Faculty of Extension are excited to offer the annual three-day course on the Planning and Design of Horizontal Directional Drilling Projects.
Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) is a construction process that is used in the pipeline construction industry to install pipelines under water bodies, steep or unstable slopes, and other environmentally sensitive areas. Despite the prolific use of HDD in the Alberta oil and gas transmission sector, planning and executing an HDD project remains a new exercise for many, and often represents a steep and fast paced learning curve for the owner or consulting engineer.
