Forage Hébert specializes in soft ground drilling. Over the years, we have developed drill rigs that are adapted and designed for all site types. As a result, we can now do drilling work in locations that would normally be restrictive and difficult to access.

The Abitibi region is known for its soft ground, wetlands and increasingly mild winters. Without specialized machinery, these conditions can become an obstacle to conducting quality drilling work.

Established in 2010, we have built our expertise in heavy equipment in order to take soil samples (cores) from sites that were previously difficult to access.

Since then, we have acquired a variety of new equipment and designed a range of custom machinery. Given the fact that winters are getting shorter every year, it is no longer possible to rely on frozen ground to make drilling easier. In response to this challenge, we have developed innovative drilling techniques that are adapted to these new climatic conditions.

Sustainable development

Respecting the environment is important to us, and that’s why all our projects are carried out methodically and in an environmentally responsible manner.

We take great care to minimize environmental impact when we transport our equipment. In the same spirit, our drilling machines were designed with the environment in mind.
