HDD Mining and Waterwell delivers to your horizontal boring projects the same industry-leading expertise we bring to extended-reach oil and gas wells. Our specialists can engineer a solution for any application, from boring beneath the Amazon River to crossing underneath a congested city highway.
The M-I SWACO HDD Mining and Waterwell group has formulated a suite of bentonite and polymer drilling products specifically for HDD applications. These fluid technologies deliver superior filtration control, as well as excellent suspension characteristics for cost-effective hole cleaning, lubrication, and troublesome clay inhibition. We provide drilling fluid systems and additives uniquely designed for both small and large-bore HDD projects.
As importantly, we deliver an integrated environmental management system that ensures minimal impact to the local communities and ecosystem.
