Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) undertook one of its largest projects to ensure the safety and reliability of its gas transmission system. PG&E contracted with Barnard under an aggressive schedule to test and in-line inspect (ILI) upgrade existing pipeline that runs through the Mojave Desert.
To complete the pipeline work, Barnard performed several ILI upgrades, completed a horizontal directional drill (HDD) under the Mojave River, and installed direct bury pipe. Additionally, Barnard strength tested two 80-mile sections of gas pipelines. This project took place in a remote location where water is scarce, the temperature is extreme, and communication is difficult.
