Slurry boring is named for its use of bentonite drilling fluids during the boring process. A slurry bore is initiated by “shooting” a pilot along the desired line and grade. After an accurate pilot is established, the bore hole is reamed by a cutter head to the desired diameter. The product pipe is then pushed into the open hole. Slurry boring is also known as “slick boring” or “wet boring.”
