The product pipeline string was fabricated in 800-feet lengths due to the limited space and then welded together halfway through the pullback operation. “Pullback went extremely smooth. We had a perfectly clean bore that made it very easy,” said Gale Sarkozi, superintendent for the Mears Group.

The project was completed Jan. 31, on schedule, benefitting from the teamwork of all parties.
