Full Bore Contracting Ltd. provides Horizontal Directional Drilling services to the Oil & Gas and Construction industries. The company is based out of Charlie Lake, BC.
Horizontal Directional Drilling is a method of trenchless installations for pipelines, conduits, culverts etc. This methodology is used to eliminate the need for a surface excavation “ground disturbance” being that conventional ditching/ open excavations can have some significant environmental impacts.
Also, Trenchless installations (HDD) can be more cost effective as well, depending on the formations and terrain at hand on an individual project basis of course. Horizontal Directional Drilling also allows installations of products into areas that cannot be open excavated like swamps and/or under creeks, mountains, roads, and structures. Finally, Trenchless methods have no surface environmental impacts to manage at later dates meaning no erosion or settling issues.
Full Bore Contracting Ltd. has provided trenchless pipeline installations in Western Canada since 2008 and is owned and operated by Bud Talbot (President) and Dallas Moore (Vice President) who both have 20+ years of oil and gas experience.
