    Client Challenge

    Crossing of the Peace River with a 42” natural gas pipeline

    Entec’s Solution

    Entec provided route evaluation, geotechnical review, feasibility analysis, detailed design, contract preparation, tendering and construction support. Deep casing designs allowed for installation of a crossing that would otherwise be unfeasible. Skilled construction support allowed for enforcement of engineering specifications.

    Results & Client Benefit

    1100-m drill path required the installation of 90-m of 84” surface casing through difficult geology that could not be overcome through the HDD process alone. The client received a well designed and constructed product as a result of diligent engineering and construction support.
