What We Do
As Australia’s leading Horizontal Directional Drilling specialist, we have successfully completed more than 300 pipeline and cable installations for providers of essential services, connecting communities with new and improved services.
Since 2000, Pipeline Drillers has been delivering low impact, economic, safe and sustainable trenchless installations of HDPE and steel pipe throughout metropolitan and regional Australia.
Horizontal Directional Drilling is a steerable trenchless method of installing underground pipes, conduits and cables in a shallow arc along a prescribed path by using a surface launched drilling rig, with limited impact on the surrounding area.
Our team of trenchless specialists work in partnership with our clients to engineer, design and construct tailored solutions incorporating the latest cutting-edge technology and expertise in Horizontal Directional Drilling, Pipe Ramming and Fusion Welding.

"The two special Hammer Drills on Fortescue River Gas Pipeline presented many challenges with changing ground conditions, wet weather, and extended driving conditions. PDG’s co-operative and professional attitude, commitment to safety and schedule, together with the ability to implement alternative drilling methods, were key factors in the successful completion of both projects."
