Sharewell is the leading supplier of downhole drilling tools, guidance systems and services for the Horizontal Directional Drilling industry.

Partnering with contractors involved in pipeline, telecommunications and utility projects, Sharewell is your complete solution for any size HDD project. Sharewell was founded in 1985 utilizing down hole technology from the oilfield to become the first service company in the world dedicated solely to servicing the horizontal directional drilling (HDD) pipeline and utility industry.

Sharewell partnered with Tensor, Inc. in 1986 to develop the patented Tru-Tracker system of locating downhole steering sensors. This system has been utilized to successfully complete millions of feet of pilot hole since. In 1992 Sharewell introduced an entire line of downhole tooling making us the first HDD service company to provide a complete tooling package to its HDD contractors.

As the industry grew, rock formations became more prevalent leading Sharewell to partner with Downhole Design, Inc to develop a hole opener that could be used to cut multiple hole sizes on a single body, while limiting the amount of torque the drilling rig would be subjected too. This was the birth of the LoTorque hole opener.

Sharewell continues to seek out strategic partnerships to provide quality service to the HDD industry. We have since introduced a shock tool enabling steering tools to be run with air hammers and are currently developing an EM tool for use in the HDD industry. Sharewell’s staff has over a century of drilling experience and has successfully drilled over 4,000,000, 000 feet of pilot hole.

Sharewell has earned its customers’ trust by consistently delivering reliability, innovation and performance since it was established in 1985.
