Pipeline Construction

The 1/2 mile long directional drilling project on the Wilmot Pipeline completed the pipeline pull back yesterday and only a few feet of pipe extends out of the ground. With the pull back complete, crews now work on connecting the pull back section with other sections of the pipeline.

Excavators were busy removing loose dirt from around the pull back pipe to reach solid ground for the placement of the next section of pipeline.

As one team start to lay out pipe for the next section of pipeline, another team works on the layout of complex pipe bending to tie the two sections together.

Laying out the 24 inch pipe sections.
