Transporting natural gas around the country requires amazing efficiency. With thousands of miles of gas pipelines intricately networked underneath America’s soils, quality gas compressor stations, which pressurize natural gas so it is capable of moving through pipelines at high speeds, are essential to gas transportation. Transco sought to build such a station in the early 1990s, which would increase productivity at huge rates.
Conti worked on an aggressive, fast-track schedule to provide Transco with a state of the art, fully-operational gas compressor station. Conti’s workforces performed a minimum of ten hours a day, six days a week to complete construction on schedule.
The team installed a 69,000 KV electrical substation generator, transformers, switchgear, grounding grids, and two 7,500 horsepower centrifugal compressor motors, in addition to the welding process and gas lines of many diameters and wall thickness. The work resulted in a capable compressor station constructed quickly and under budget.
Conti was responsible for this turnkey project and performed construction activities, scheduling, health and safety, QA/QC documentation, facility testing, finish painting, cleaning, commissioning, and equipment and systems training.
Conti broke ground and completed the project in record time thanks to strong coordination and scheduling.
