Berg Pipe, with manufacturing facilities in Mobile, AL and Panama City, FL, USA, has been awarded a large order by TC Energy.
The line pipe contract placed with Berg is part of the Keystone XL pipeline, currently under construction, that will deliver up to 830 000 bpd of crude oil from Alberta, Canada to Steele City, Nebraska (USA). “This project is extremely important to the US economy, and its national interest as it further reduces the need to import oil from unstable regions in the world”, Ingo Riemer, Berg’s President and CEO said.
One of the largest manufacturers of pipe in the US, Berg will receive steel from multiple domestic suppliers and produce the pipe at its facilities along the Gulf Coast. Berg will follow strict manufacturing guidelines to ensure its product is of the highest quality and in compliance with pipeline safety regulations. This order will also keep hundreds of Berg’s employees in Mobile and in Panama City busy into next year as a result of this pipe contract. Riemer added, “We are very fortunate to not only provide continued employment at our facilities during this pandemic, but to also contribute to the extended economic and employment impact within our communities.”
