Work with a highly experienced team for your next project.

Horizontal Directional Drilling

Omni is accomplished in completing a wide range of horizontal directional drilling services, from major water course crossings to short back alley service shots. We have successfully completed bores over 1,000 meters (3,280 ft) in length and 900 mm (36”) in diameter.

Our fleet of drills include:

  • Vermeer 220×300 (one)
  • Vermeer 100×120 (two)
  • Ditchwitch 100 AT (one)
  • Vermeer 80×100 (two)
  • Ditchwitch 8020 (one)
  • Vermeer 40×55 (two)
  • Vermeer 36×50 (four)
  • Vermeer 20×22 (two)
  • Vermeer 9×13 (one)
  • Vermeer 7×11 (two)

We are experienced in hard formation drilling, offering both traditional mud motor drilling services and the Ditchwitch 100 All Terrain drill, designed specifically to drill in rock formation with less fluid, helping reduce frac out risk.

We can provide full drill mud recycling systems which helps cut down on drilling fluid disposal costs and reduces fresh water use.

To ensure the accuracy of our drilling, we offer top of the line steering systems including the Digitrak Falcon F5 wireless locating system which includes datalogging of the drill profile and fluid pressure monitoring. It also offers dual frequency bands, helping to overcome passive and active interference, meaning we can maintain depth and data readings through interference sources including:

  • Traffic signal loops
  • Overhead power
  • Concrete with rebar

For engineered horizontal directional drill, we offer the Paratrack 2 wireline guidance system to ensure the accuracy required to successfully complete the pilot hole at deeper depths than capable with wireless systems.

 

Pipe Fusion

Pipe fusion is the process of joining two pieces of thermoplastic pipe together with heat and pressure, to form a continuous length of pipe. Omni is licenced to fuse both HDPE and PVC pipe.

We are experienced fusing in municipal, industrial, and oilfield locations for a variety of lines including water and sewer mains, fire water, oil and gas, leak detection, and power and communication conduits.

We have CSA level 2 fusers qualified to butt fuse up to 1600 mm (64 inch) inch HDPE and 750 mm (30 inch) PVC pipe, along with electrofusion services.

We can datalog our fusion joints to provide you with a detailed breakdown of each fused pipe joint to ensure quality controls specifications are upheld.

 

Slip Lining

By utilizing our directional drill and pipe fusion services, we have performed numerous slip line projects.

First we fuse up the new product pipe, whether it’s HDPE or PVC, and install custom made low profile pull heads to the front of the pipe.

Then we use our directional drill to run our drill rods through the existing host pipe, whether it’s cast iron, concrete, or plastic, from the entry pit to the exit pit. We attach custom made tooling to clean out the inside of the existing pipe.

Finally, we hook up to our pull head that is attached to the fused drag section, and pull it back through the host pipe.

We have successfully completed slip lines with continuous product pipe over 800 meters (2,600 feet) in lengths and 1200 mm (48 inch) in diameter.

 

Industries We Serve

Omni is accomplished in completing a wide range of horizontal directional drilling services, from major water course crossings to short back alley service shots. We have successfully completed bores over 1,000 meters (3,280 ft) in length and 900 mm (36”) in diameter.

Oil & Gas

Our fleet of drills makes us the right choice for your pipeline HDD requirements. With a large fleet of 100,000 lbs and 220,000 lbs drills, we can tackle projects that require multiple drills.

Industrial

Omni being an expert provider of HDD and pipe fusion services on industrial sites, our qualified staff understand the unique requirements of working in plants and ensure the job gets done.

Utility

This is where it all started for Omni Directional boring decades ago. We are the leader in the trenchless installation of residential and rural gas lines, power conduits, and telecommunications lines.

Water & Sewer

Omni is a leader in the directional drilling of water and sewer lines. Typically involving the trenchless installation of HDPE or PVC pipe, we provide the directional drill, and related equipment.
