Kinder Morgan Plant – New Mexico
Date: May 23, 2016 – Ongoing
Location: Blanco Plant, Bloomfield, NM
Owner: Kinder Morgan / EPNG
Contractor: Kinder Morgan / EPNG
Description: Provide vacuum truck & crew to expose gas lines inside a major natural gas station, so that the Kinder Morgan crews can safely recoat the pipes.
Challenges: The pipes are in four different locations within a major natural gas station in Bloomfield under three different owners; Kinder Morgan, Enterprise Products, and Conoco Phillips along with unknown lines. For this reason, four digs needed to be completed using vacuum excavating only.
Method: Vacuum excavating – Jack hammer
Results: Four digs excavated, lines evaluated, sand blasted, recoated and backfilled
