Pipeline Contractors

Pipeline contractors are necessary for installing and maintaining the expansive network of subsurface pipeline systems that extend across the nation. Pipelines are necessary for transporting the various types of fuels, as well as removing sewer waste and protecting utilities from environmental elements.

Pipeline contractors are charged with the duties of installing and fitting pipelines that allow transfer of fluids, such as petroleum, gas, or water, and for the containment of other types of materials such as sewage. Other responsibilities include applying protective coatings to pipelines and any type of work required to complete pipeline installation, such as trenching, backfilling, paving or surfacing.

People often fail to recognize the importance of pipelines. Without them, Americans would find it next to impossible to obtain fuel for their cars or heat for their homes. They wouldn't be able to enjoy the luxury of having access to fresh running water or indoor toilets.

There is substantial work involved with the installation of pipelines. The majority of pipeline is installed underground, so it would be helpful for contractors to have knowledge of subsurface utility engineering. Prior to starting pipeline construction, contractors need to obtain necessary permits and determine the location of existing subsurface utilities.

Pipelines are utilized in several venues that range from residential applications to industrial. While some contractors are capable of installing any type of pipeline, most specialize in dry utility pipeline construction or wet utility pipeline construction.

Dry utility pipeline contractors typically handle projects related to natural gas, electrical, and communications. Protecting communications is vital not only for the business world, but to assure safety within communities. Communications facilities are comprised of integrated networks of electrical conduit systems and fiber optics that are usually safeguarded underground. In the case of natural gas, dry utility pipelines hold and transport gaseous, non-liquid volumes.

Wet utility pipeline contractors are involved with projects that transfer water, petroleum products, and the like such as the installation of sewer pipeline and other underground pipes that transport oil to refineries.

Pipeline systems are categorized as residential, commercial, industrial, institutional, and public works. Each system relies on a pipeline contractor that is experienced in the specific field. Installing sewer pipelines in a newly constructed residential community is entirely different than pipeline construction on commercial sites. It is vital to determine the specialty of pipeline contractors to ensure they are qualified for the job.

Pipeline contractors are generally hired by the General Contractors. To ensure compliance with local, state, and federal laws, as well as stay on schedule with the project it is vital to work with reputable pipeline construction companies.
