PL Project

High Tech

Tank Rebuild







Pipeline Project


One third mile PL project covering

 3 primary construction sites:


       1) Manifold Site:  PL tie-in to 20" PL

               above ground MOV and

               instrumentation pads.

       2) Container Yard:  HDR Drill Site &

               PL trenching to manifold.

       3) Parking Lot:  HDR pull site & under

               ground vault tie-in.

Dakota Access Pipeline.  (For comparison purposes only.)



Compare the terrain, the obstacles, the congestion, the potential

danger to health and environment.  Compared to the pipeline

illustrated, the Dakota Access is a piece-of-cake.
