Rock In Colorado Challenges HDD Contractors

September 2012, Vol. 67 No. 9

The pull back was successful for Brotherton, but even more so for the business owners with whom Jim and his crew had developed a solid relationship. The Eagle-Val business park had remained open without interruption. Brotherton Pipeline had completed the project with a single pilot hole attempt and a single reaming pass despite treacherous conditions and 100 percent lost circulation. While Fugal had utilized directional drilling to keep their promise, Brotherton Pipeline had used experience and innovation to successfully complete another difficult project.
