    Client Challenge

    Crossing of the Beaver River with an NPS 4 pipeline.

    Entec’s Solution

    Entec provided route evaluation and geotechnical review leading to a change in the crossing location to avoid unsuitable geology. Detailed design was then completed with a high level of confidence in feasibility. Providing contract preparation, tendering and construction support allowed Entec to provide timely decision making support.

    Results & Client Benefit

    Although a short 232-m drill path, construction proved challenging and Entec was able to assist in providing a cost effective solution for the client.
