The Difference Between Drilling Companies

The difference is clear

There are different types of drilling companies that drill through rock. Each uses specialized equipment suited to their purposes. That is why, at Maine Drilling & Blasting, we do not, for instance, drill wells for water or oil. Neither do we do directional drilling, which is horizontal through source rock, rather conventional, vertical drilling. We also do not drill or hydrofrack for natural gas, but we DO drill and blast for access and for well pads for natural gas extraction.

In other words, Maine Drilling & Blasting is one of those drilling companies whose business it is to drill rock in order to blast it to either clear the way for construction projects and their foundations/structures, or to produce quarry rock to be processed into aggregate for the building and transportation industries.
