HDD: Best Practices and Lessons Learned
Large natural gas compressor station

This presentation will highlight Engineering best practices along with interesting challenges and outcomes from a large sampling of horizontal directional drillings (HDD’s) designed and constructed across the county. A combined perspective of pipeline and geotechnical Engineering will provide interesting insight as complex geometry, lengthy and challenging condition HDDs, and lessons learned are explored. 


Conference Delivered:

  • American Gas Association’s 2022 Spring Operations Conference
