Hello Sidney,

I am not aware of any single reference that would cover the entire topic. ASCE published a Manual on Pipeline Crossings years ago (1996) that had some good guidelines for HDD. More recently, MONESS RIZKALLA AND RODNEY READ published a book titled PIPELINE GEOHAZARDS: PLANNING, DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION AND OPERATIONS (ASME Press Books, New York 2018 I think - but note this is an expensive book). Other than this I think you will need to look for individual papers and build up your own collection. Good luck!
