Pipeline Contractor

A good pipeline contractor is hard to come by especially because there is no trade school to become a pipeline project manager or superintendent. The only way to really learn pipeline construction is to work directly for pipeline construction companies. In some cases, there is no formal in-house training offered and new employees simply go out in the field and learn hands-on from their associates. Pipeline contractors may have had decades of field experience, learning the company's culture along the way, to get the basics. However, some things just tend to get missed when lacking formal training.

To solve this problem, Kana Pipeline developed its own in-house pipeline contractor training program for its future Superintendents and Project Managers - those who are directly involved with contract work.

S.U.E.

Subsurface Utility Engineering (S.U.E.) is in a nutshell, vacuum utility potholing and private utility locating. S.U.E. tasks essentially involve pre-design investigative processes of vertical and horizontal locations under the ground. These processes allow topside investigation of existing utilities in order to verify whether a proposed new utility or utility pipeline installation in that area would be feasible.

Many consider S.U.E. to be the damage prevention solution to consulting engineers. S.U.E. helps ensure that there are no underground utility conflicts once plans are approved and underground pipeline construction has begun. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. So goes S.U.E., in preventing underground utility conflicts in the design and preconstruction phase of any new construction project.
