Houston-based Technical Toolboxes, a global provider of pipeline software, online resources and technical training for the midstream energy industry, has launched its new Horizontal Directional Drilling PowerTool (HDDPT)
The HDDPT, an advanced software solution for horizontal drilling projects, aims to enable safe and efficient pipeline drilling, reaming and installation at road crossings, bodies of water and railroad right of ways.
The new solution applies to the design and construction phases of a pipeline and is engineered to successfully execute projects through design insight and planning, minimising excavation complexity, lowering costs, preventing borehole collapse and monitoring drilling or pulling operations.
The product adds value in various applications including natural gas, petroleum, water and sewer lines, telecommunications and electric power lines.
Drew Lafleur, chief technology officer at Technical Toolboxes, said, “The HDDPT builds on the success of our Horizontal Directional Drilling Toolbox (HDDTB) software. Our HDDPT however, features greatly improved functionality, including geographic information systems (GIS) and integration.”
The company is a leading global provider of integrated and cloud-based pipeline software, consulting and industry training for pipeline engineering and technical professionals.
