Trenchless pipeline…

Pipe for oil field File:Photo KDG

The Trans Mountain pipeline people are using horizontal drilling as well as other methods to cause less disturbance in the laying of the extension of its pipeline to the Coast of BC.

The project is said to emplyee 2200 people and is building on 60 some years of reputation operating the existing line.

We will use trenchless construction techniques, where appropriate, to minimize disruptions. This may be used where the pipeline crosses roads and railways, for select watercourse crossings, and places with restricted workspace such as in some urban areas. Multiple trenchless construction techniques are employed with the selected methodology based on geotechnical conditions, available working space, and length of the trenchless crossing.

There is an antimated display on Trans mountains site for viewing and comment. The company included water courses in the employment of horizontal methods.
