Drilling Contractors from Orana Drilling Can Bring Line Drilling Machines to Your Next Project

We understand how difficult it can be when you want to start your next project and find out there is bedrock in the way. Sometimes, it's not possible to perform normal drilling and blasting procedures to break the rock up to excavate it. Maybe your project is too close to buildings or communities, or it's in too tight of a space.

Using a line drilling machine is a fast and effective way to be able to break up the rock with minimal destruction. It's very popular in the mining and quarrying industries throughout Australia. It's also found practical use in several other civil works industries with great success. The flexibility level of this directional drilling process makes it useful on both large and small projects. Our drilling contractors can tailor our line drilling procedure to suit your project and get it off to a strong start.

What is Line Drilling?

Line drilling is a method of rock excavation used by companies around the world. You use drilling equipment to drill a series of holes that are very close together. The holes are roughly 10 cm apart and then are drilled around the perimeter to cut into the rock. The rock will eventually break away at this line. It allows you to seamlessly excavate the area while having precision control over how large your rock fragments are.

Benefits of Line Drilling

There are several benefits that come with performing a line drill at your project site. They include but are not limited to:

Reduce Costs

Line drilling can be faster than traditional blasting. This reduces the overall costs and lowers your project's overhead.

Minimal Disturbances

You'll have minimal disturbance to the surrounding environment and it takes less time. You're not displacing large quantities of soil by excavating the rock this way. As a result, you're able to get back to your projects much faster.


Line drilling allows you to quickly and effectively move the rock to place utilities, pipes and water or sewer lines. You can use directional drilling to clear a space where you need it.
