Providing Integrity and Maintenance to Aging Pipeline Networks
Date: March 21, 2022
Aging pipeline networks throughout North America can carry potential health, safety, and environmental repercussions stemming from pipeline integrity issues. Operators safely mitigate these potential issues with maintenance programs that uphold a safe, reliable flow of energy resources to power homes, businesses, and communities. The experts at PLH Group are part of this solution.
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the United States operates nearly 3 million miles of pipelines that safely transport natural gas and liquid petroleum products to consumers. For decades, PLH Group companies – Pipeworx, Snelson, and Energy Services South – have been leaders in pipeline energy construction. These energy construction companies have installed thousands of miles of pipelines.
Over time, though, pipelines are subjected to corrosion, metal loss, dents, leaks, and weather-related damage, which can lead to potentially dangerous pressure surges. To combat these changes, more stringent policies, procedures, and standards have been put into place. In addition to pipeline construction services, PLH Group companies are also experts in servicing pipelines with integrity and maintenance safety and reliability throughout the United States and into Canada.
“PLH Group companies provide more than pipeline, station, and facility construction and installation. Our organizations also collaboratively deliver comprehensive energy solutions to aging pipeline infrastructure. We have the advantage of collaboration through this process that other organizations aren’t able to offer,” said Vice President of Safety, Health, and Environmental Elsie Bentley. “Our group of companies seamlessly provide pipeline system integrity and maintenance, including pipeline hydrostatic testing, valve installation and automation, anomaly digs, and corrosion mitigation.”
From highly populated cities to rural areas, PLH Group experts are ready to respond to both planned projects and emergency services. Through organization-wide collaboration, PLH Group professionals are part of the solution to aging pipeline infrastructure.
