Contour Directional Drilling Ltd.

Contour Directional Drilling is a 100% Canadian-owned company located in the core of Southwestern Ontario in the town of Elmira. We service all of Southern Ontario including the GTA, London, Barrie, and everything in between.

Established in 1997, Contour Directional Drilling Ltd. has been there since the inception of horizontal directional drilling and trenchless technology in Ontario’s commercial and residential markets. Through passion, drive and vast experience, Contour has established itself as the benchmark for trenchless underground utility installation in Ontario. We were there when the industry was ‘young’ and have developed alongside it.

Contour Directional Drilling Ltd., installs utilities underground without digging any trenches. We accomplish this by drilling horizontally underground. A standard drill-shot goes like this:

  • We determine a bore-path (or drill-path) after reviewing the job site.
  • We make sure any underground obstructions have been located prior to drilling.
  • Next we decide we decide on our drilling fluid mix. The drill fluid acts as a lubricant while also preserving the drill-hole.
  • We setup our drill and make a small entrance hole. We drill underground until we reach the desired depth and then level out our drill steel. The drilling is conducted horizontally from here until we reach our pre-planned exit hole.
  • After we have successfully reached the exit hole, we attach a reamer and the conduit/pipe (that will eventually contain the utility) to the drill steel.
  • We pull the drill steel, reamer, and conduit back through our drill-hole to the original entrance pit.
  • We clean up. Job completed! The conduit is successfully installed and awaiting its utility with no digging necessary.
