                        Directional drilling is the practice of drilling wells at multiple angles in order to reach and produce more oil and gas receives. This practice came about in the 1920s and in addition to being more profitable than traditional vertical drilling is also better for the environment. The technologies used for directional drilling are ever changing to improve the process The most recent change comes with a device called the Helios Inferno PDC cutter. This cutter uses deep leech technology which results in faster drilling and greater durability through sandstone and limestone ll while maintaining the well path. Also recently released was the Cutter Index  which ranks cutter technology according to its resistance to thermal degradation, abrasion, and impact damage. In the directional drilling world it is of the utmost importance to stay on top of these ever changing technologies in order to remain competitive in the underground drilling field. At Horizon we are committed to doing just that to remain at the top of our industry not only in practice but in knowledge as well.

There’s a bunch of directional drilling companies. We can’t deny that. So, you might be asking yourself, “Why use us?”. Because we’re more than just a run of the mill drilling company. When Lance and Bobbiann Fair founded Horizon Underground Inc. in 2000 they were running a small family business with a single directional drill. Since then, many things have changed. The business grew into a massive 50-employee company that can service your every underground construction need. The one thing that hasn’t changed is our attitude of treating our employees and customers as we did when we had that small family business. When you hire Horizon Underground Inc. you aren’t just hiring a group of people who want your money and don’t care about you. You’re hiring a family that treats you the way they would want to be treated if the tables were turned. We love our jobs and are committed to not only treating you right, but staying on top of the ever changing technologies and equipment in the underground world so that we can provide you with the best services possible.

Merry Christmas from Us!
