Drill Rod / Drill Stem

E&M Supply Group in conjunction with South Louisiana Machine Shop can make any and all types of drill rods / drill stems.

E&M Supply Group also sells drill pipe to the water well drilling industry and HDD industry, or as they prefer to call it drill rod or drill stem.  In both industries, the largest drills use the same drill pipe that is used by the oil and gas industry.  The most common size drill pipe used in water well drilling is 6 5/8” OD x 31ft long drill pipe, whereas in HDD the big rigs use 5”, 5 ½” and 6 5/8”.  E&M maintains a large inventory of drill rod and drill stem to meet both industry’s needs.  For example, to meet the requirements of “reverse circulation” drilling, which is very popular in water the well industry, we can supply 6 5/8” drill pipe that has a 5” ID or even larger in some cases.  On the other hand, double shoulder or “DS” drill stem is most popular in the HDD industry.

Smaller water well and HDD drills use smaller and shorter drill rod and drill stem. E&M maintains an inventory of shorter drill pipe, and also represents some of the top water well drill rod and drill stem manufacturers in the country. Please check our inventory link, and call or email us today if you would like to buy drill rod, drill stem, or drill pipe for your HDD water well drilling rig.
