Boardwalk Field Services, a midstream, full-service gas company, was ready to expand. They already had a gathering system in South Texas, but the nearby Eagle Ford development was a great opportunity to take another big step forward. That step forward was 64 miles of pipe.
Our experience with oil and gas—its regulatory steps and specialized engineering—kept us working strong on the project. One of our biggest challenges was finding a way to get 1,200 feet of 30-inch diameter pipe safely across the Guadalupe River in a confined area. But, with extensive calculations and a proven horizontal directional drill solution, we met that challenge too.
This project was permitted, approved, designed, and underway in just seven short months.
