Fast Fusion Speeds Gas Pipeline Construction

January 2009 Vol. 236 No. 1

Pacific Tank & Pipeline installed a 16-mile, 16-inch gas pipeline and two 12-inch gas pipelines in Wagner, OK for Houston-based Coronado Energy E&P Company, L.L.C.

The HDPE DR9 pipe used to construct all three pipelines was supplied from ISCO Industries plant in Pryor, OK.

Pacific Tank & Pipeline was charged with completing more than 40 directional bores to accommodate area creeks and environment wetlands. According to Pacific Tank, the job posed several challenges. Crews had to deal with one of the wettest years on record for rainfall in Oklahoma, which resulted in the job shutting down when crews could not reach the jobsite. Pacific Tank & Pipeline and ISCO completed the project on time and on budget.
