In the current energy transition period, the knowledge of the trenchless installation technique becomes more important and relevant for consultants who works on pipeline infrastructure projects. Not only to acquire a new insight, but also the fact that most of the pipeline infrastructure nowadays are constructed using trenchless technique and horizontal directional drilling (HDD) is one of the most popular trenchless techniques. This technique has been developing and evolving since the first application on landside around 1970 and becomes a very effective trenchless installation method. Not only a larger pipeline diameter can be installed by using the current HDD technique, but the maximum installation length keeps breaking the record. 


D-Geo Pipeline provides tools for the design of a pipeline installation in a trench and trenchless installation. One of the trenchless features in D-Geo Pipeline is horizontal directional drilling (HDD) technique. D-Geo Pipeline allows the user to minimise the risks during and after HDD installation. 


The advance course D-Geo Pipeline – Horizontal directional drilling, deals with the following design aspects of the HDD: 
•    drilling fluid pressures,
•    soil (soil-pipe interaction) and ground water pressure 
•    complex borehole stability (decrease of drilling fluid level)
•    pulling force
•    pipe stress analysis of the product pipeline
•    soil subsidence
•    dealing with external loading such as embankment
•    complex bundle pipes (of different materials)


After going through the various design aspects the participants will be challenged to use the knowledge to solve various drilling problems form real projects. During the course the participants will also learn how to use the software to its full potential to design a HDD project (which is not covered in the basic D-Geo Pipeline course). Some basic knowledge on using D-Geo Pipeline and horizontal directional drilling are preferable to join this courses.


The course is developed for

  • Project managers and design specialists from contractors
  • Project managers and design specialists from engineering agencies
  • Specialists from permit and license issuing agencies
  • Project managers and specialists from cable and pipeline owners.


Course instructor

  • Mr D. (David) Nugroho, Deltares
