Large Diameter Pipeline Design Case Study
Providing seamless expertise, our engineering team partnered with our client in design, construction, and post-installation inspections. Utilizing a single source known for proactive communication improved efficiency to deliver a successful project.
Mainline engineering and project management for a new 24” diameter 168-mile crude oil pipeline connecting terminal facilities with an operating pressure of 1440 psig. The project included several horizontal directional drillings (HDDs) and ran adjacent to several high voltage power lines.
- Cathodic Protection
- Alternating Current (AC) Mitigation Design
- Construction Engineering Support
- Project Management
The LSC engineering team's experience with Cathodic Protection and AC mitigation design provided a robust design that would allow the pipeline to operate reliably over the life of the asset. Our team gathered stakeholder requirements from the client, contractors, and powerline transmission companies to implement a sound technical solution.
MEETING SCHEDULES AND BUDGET
Working closely with the client, our resources ensured the project was executed on schedule and to budget. Oversight of the HDDs and response to issues with the guided bore crossings enabled a successful project with limited anomalies identified post-installation. LSC’s timely turn-around and expertise proved invaluable in keeping the project on schedule and within budget. LSC's experts in Cathodic Protection and AC mitigation design and their understanding of stakeholder requirements led to a robust corrosion protection design.
Throughout construction, LSC provided qualified engineering resources and trenchless specialists to ensure requirements were met during construction and to provide immediate support for field issues to ensure timely resolution.
