A pipeline construction project looks much like a moving assembly line. A large project typically is broken into manageable lengths called “spreads” and utilizes highly specialized and qualified workgroups. Each spread is composed of various crews, each with its own responsibilities. As the first crew completes its work, the next crew will move into position to complete its piece of the construction process. The following is a general description of a typical pipeline construction process.
Affected landowners receive notification before construction begins. They will be provided with a dispute resolution process to ensure their concerns or complaints are addressed.
A Land Agent will perform as the landowner’s liaison during construction and restoration activities.
