We have successfully engineered and executed many landmark projects in the fields of land-based directional drilling and HDD  both in Australia and overseas.

Our directional drilling teams pioneered the use of large diameter holes for coal mine degasification. This methodology has proven more effective and safer than traditional drainage techniques. We work in close partnership with our customers to find the optimal solution for each drilling program. Together with our in-house drilling engineers and steerers, we continue to trial innovative approaches that set new industry standards.

LUCAS is considered the Australian industry leader in directional drilling in coal.
