Cable and Pipe Installation
With the honour of working on Ministry of Defence (MoD) COMAH Fuel Storage Sites, installing Fuel Pipelines and maintaining Fuel Storage Tanks.
Our team of engineers possesses comprehensive training and certifications to execute the entire spectrum of tasks involved in pipeline operations. This includes installation, testing, purging, repairs, and maintenance, ensuring that we meet all necessary requirements.
With our expertise in pipeline technology, above-ground storage, and terminal operations, we are capable of merging the technical competencies of our oil and gas pipeline operation and engineering teams. This integration allows us to provide end-to-end, integrated services tailored to meet our customers’ specific needs.
A pipeline construction project resembles a well-coordinated assembly line. To manage large-scale projects effectively, they are divided into manageable sections known as “spreads.” Each spread is assigned to specialized and qualified workgroups responsible for their respective tasks. As one crew completes their work, the next crew takes their place to continue the construction process. These spreads can span up to 30 miles in length, with the front of the spread clearing the right-of-way and the back of the spread restoring it to its original state.
