The horizontal bore process begins with a directional drill bit entering the entrance pit to contain and manage the drilling fluids. Asonde, the radio detection device track the directional drill bit. Within and extended connection to the directional drill pipe, the measurements of depth and pitch are sent to the walk-over locating device. This then shares directions to the directional driller on which way to steer the drill. The directional drilling crew can navigate and steer the drill down right and left and in any combination of varying degrees that is required to drill a desired horizontal bore path.
