Pipeline Construction

The welding crew continued to prepare the "pull-back" sections of the Wilmot Pipeline for leak testing. The team welding an end on the pipeline section.

A couple of the ends welded on the pipeline for testing.

Before the pipeline ends were welded on, a pipeline "pig" was inserted into each section of pipe. A pipeline "pig" is a device that is moved through the pipeline by the flow of gas or fluids.
