Typical Hydro Water Course planning

HDD Planning for Trenchless Technology Solutions, HDD horizontal directional projects is a new innovated HDD Tool Face Plan. HDD Horizontal Bore planning Software compares the planned versus drilled trajectories. Complete with a Directional Drillers Tool Box covering tool face calculations. The software covers multiple trajectory plans. River Crossing, Hydro Power water courses, Tunneling, Mining and Civil Engineering, with a few inputs the software develops all the charting for Azimuth, Tangents, Turns and Bends and Dog Legs.(Bend Ratios)


The program requires Microsoft Office 2010, Microsoft 365 upwards, Windows 7,  all versions up to Windows 10

the Program covers the following, HDD planning software, HDD Drilling software, HDD Horizontal drilling software, HDD design software, HDD design calculations, HDD Tool face Calculations, horizontal directional drilling calculations for Excel, HDD Plan. HDD Crossing, Trenchless Technology for civil engineering projects

HDD Software for Trenchless Technology provides a user-friendly trajectory design interface for the unique requirements for Trenchless Technology and the HDD (Horizontal Directional Drilling Planning ), industry.

The program includes a Drillers Toolbox, Directional drilling calculations, HDD Tool Face Plan provides a user-friendly trajectory design interface for the unique requirements of the  (Horizontal Directional Drilling), industry to plan drilling trajectories starting and ending at any inclination and with multiple Tangent and Curve (Bend) sections.  Applications for this program include civil engineering projects such as drilling under a river, road, airport runway, etc., to install utility shafts, drilling subway tunnels under cities, drilling hydro-electric water course tunnels, drilling mine shafts, etc.  HDD Plan provides for five (5) contiguous Tangent and/or BendTurn sections which suffices for most applications.

The Minimum Curvature Method is used to calculate 3 dimensional trajectories based upon X,Y,Z  displacements for each section.  The XYZ coordinates for this program equate to East-West (X), North-South (Y) and True Vertical Depth (Z).  The user can input the length of each section either by measured depth (MD) length or true vertical depth (TVD) length.  With Inclination and Azimuth inputs, the end point of each section is defined and the resulting trajectory is calculated with surveys generated at the User selected survey intervals up to 1000 surveys, on the Planned Survey sheet.


Mining and Mineral Exploration 

Mining and Mineral Exploration based on Slant Rigs and mining for minerals and formation investigation searching for valued minerals, the initial slant well profile is the main trajectory. The program takes into consideration the minimum curvature and calculates dog Leg Severity over the full well bore. In Addition up to 4 Side Tracks can be planned from the original Planned slant trajectory

The Mining and Mineral Exploration program is designed for exploring planned geological targets. The data for each plot can be reviewed, edited or deleted individually making the program very versatile

Individual plot data can be selected for detailed review at the side of the charts. which include Vertical section view plus 4 side tracks, planned view and dogleg severity. Each individual plot can be removed or edited.

With MinEX you can analyse different plots to a single target to decide the best approach
