Without pipeline clearing, there would be dangerous limitations for reclamation projects. Areas with erosive vegetation invaded by unwanted weeds can degrade property boundaries. This can not only affect our team of contractors, but the human well-being, also. Pipeline reclamation not only increases safety for everyone, but it also serves a purpose of positive appearance. Clearing the land makes for less congested vegetation, which allows for a cleaner look. It also makes room for easy access to reach pipelines for maintenance, especially in emergency situations. Reclamation and clearing of pipelines also retain ground control hazards from occurring.
The pipeline right of way, also known as an easement, involves any legal interest in land owned by another party, consists of permission from that party to gain the right to use the land for any specific purpose. Before starting any construction work on the right of way, approval must be obtained from the Federal Energy regulatory Commission. Once approved, contractors will have the legal right to access and inspect the land, as well as the ability to cross other areas of the property. After given access to the right of way, contractors may proceed with the pipeline reclamation process.
Like land clearing, the right of way area must be cleared of any hazardous and non-useful vegetation or existing pipelines in preparation for pipeline restoration services or installments. The crew working on the pipelines will bring in specialized trailers that use the stringing method to move the pipe(s) to the right of way. They will complete restoration of the right of way by distributing the pipe joints according to the design plans as a form of coating, based on the right of way location and soil condition. Our specialists will check their work at every step of the way in order to promote worker safety, environmental performance and the overall integrity of the pipeline.
