Integrity Kokosing Process

Environmental Controls

We are experienced in installing environmental controls necessary to not only follow the E&S drawings and regulations, but also to perform due diligence and minimize impact to the environment we work in. The controls are in compliance with industry best management practices and our customers’ Environmental Construction Standards.

Grading the Right-of-Way

Integrity Kokosing is familiar with working in all forms of difficult terrain, including winch hills, steep side cuts, and wetlands. Right-of-ways are cut to grade to provide safe access to the construction site.

Ditch Excavation

Our crews mechanically excavate the ditch, utilizing either a trencher and/or an excavator. The ditch is excavated to a specified depth and width for pipe placement, as determined by the diameter of pipe to be installed.

When needed IKPS is prepared to use non-mechanical means to excavate, when conditions required protecting the existing pipe. Our crews can hand dig to expose the pipe or use air and hydro excavating.

Rock Excavation and Blasting

Often times the geology of our customers’ pipeline projects requires a little more effort to handle bedrock. Our crews are equipped with the necessary support and tooling for rock excavation, including hydraulic hammering, drilling, and blasting to break rock in a controlled manner.

Pipe Stringing

IKPS utilizes a vacuum attachment to unload and string pipe along the right-of-way, in a manner to protect the factory-applied coatings and bevels. Depending on the customer’s preference, IKPS is capable of receiving pipe directly from the manufacturer, and providing inventory and management of the materials for the owner throughout the project, or truck material from an owner-provided pipe yard.

Engineering and Bending

Our bending engineers are experienced in this region to fit the topography in which the right-of-way is aligned. We are equipped with bending machines necessary for all sizes of pipe up to 36 inches.

Welding

IKPS utilizes a vast network of skilled welders to perform all welding operations, including shop or field fabrication. Our welders are certified and tested to the Owners Welding Procedures that typically follow the API 1104 standard.

Coating

After the welds are X-rayed, our coating crews sandblast and coat with an approved coating, specified by the customer. The pipeline is always calibrated with a holiday detector to identify and determine any defect in the coating prior to installation. Our crews are trained to perform internal coating on pipelines that have special internal requirements, commonly found on steel waterlines.

Lowering In

The ditch is visually inspected regularly before and during lowering operations. A designated competent person completes an inspection of the excavation. IKPS will confirm that the site is safe for both the team members and the pipe to be in the ditch. The bottom is cleared of rocks and debris or padded with soft dirt and/or sand bags. The pipe is carefully lowered into the ditch by sideboom tractors and a combination of excavators using belts or cradles in a coordinated action.

 

Backfilling

During the backfill operation, excavated material is returned to the ditch. When soil conditions are not suitable to be directly placed on the pipe, padding buckets are utilized to place filtered soil over the pipe to protect against sharp rocks and abrasion.

Pigging and Testing

Completed pipelines are tested to ensure that the system will operate at designated pressures. Pressure tests are conducted using water (hydrostatic) or air/nitrogen (pneumatic). The test is carefully monitored and once completed, the pipe is cleaned, dried to the customer’s standard and ready to be put into service. Our crews are qualified to conduct both forms of testing and perform the necessary pigging operations, to clean, size, and dry the line. All measuring equipment is calibrated within the interval specified by the customer or with a 12-month maximum.

We have qualified team members and specialized equipment to properly test infrastructure integrity with the goal of ensuring the safety of all pipeline construction personnel and the general public.

IKPS makes sure to take the steps to properly prepare the pipe for all facets of testing. Prior to beginning any testing operation, IKPS will work with the customer to draft a test plan, detailing each step of the testing operation.

Restoration

The final phase of the construction involves replacing topsoil, seeding the right-of-way, removing construction material, and restoring the area to its original pre-construction condition. IKPS understands the importance of restoring the site as close to the original conditions as possible. At the end of the day, this is the final product that the community will see and remember as part of our craftsmanship.

Concrete

We perform a wide variety of concrete services including layout, foundation installation, formed columns and walls, slab on grade, structural concrete, and site concrete as it relates to our compressor station and gas conditioning builds.
