About the project

The Pala performed this time sensitive project to connect the production facility with a new logistics pipeline.  To quote the project manager on the project, “this is not a fast track project, it is a flash track project!”. By mid 2005 the project was in detailed design, with an estimated total installed cost of $28MM. With a short construction window until the Pipeline would become operational and long pump and substation delivery schedules, the Project Team knew they had to find a way to allow the client to deliver Gas, Jet, and Diesel at design rates to the pipeline well before the projected project completion date. 

 The project required, 167 tie ins and had almost 544 field change orders doubling the scope of work. Pala met the accelerated schedule and had a leak free start up on all systems.
