Updates from the Trans Mountain Expansion Project on Ponoka Creek HDD, Acheson to Entwistle, Entwistle to East of Edson, West of Edson to West of Obed, West of Obed to West of Hinton and Edson Stockpile site construction office and yard.

Ponoka Creek HDD

HDD is being used to cross near Ponoka Creek. This work takes place in a phased approach beginning with the establishment of temporary work spaces on either side of the area being crossed. One site houses a drilling rig and associated equipment, and the other serves as a staging site for the pipe and will include welding and pipe stringing. After the site is prepared the crossing will be drilled, and then pipe pulled back through. After the drilling phase is complete the site will be cleared and returned to its original use.

Acheson to Entwistle pipeline construction

Work is underway in a series of phased activities along the pipeline right-of-way between Achesone and Entwistle. This could include; surveying, flagging and staking the right-of-way, mobilisation of crews and equipment, preparing the right-of-way, clearing and grading, delivery and staging of pipe, trenching, welding, lowering of pipe, backfilling and restoration of the right-of-way.

Know the advantages of trenching versus excavating

Trencher or excavator? For pipeline distribution, power, water, sewer, gas and underdrain installations, as well as other heavy-duty trenching applications, both machines can do the work, yet excavators continue to be more prevalently used. But, this seems to be largely due to tradition. In fact, many contractors will tell you that they still install product with an excavator because that’s the way they’ve always done it.
