Ø2235 mm x 16 mm (Thickness) x 2.35 KM,

Ø1829 mm x 12.5 mm (Thickness) x 22.845 KM,

Natural Gas Transmission Pipeline (ZCINA Algeria) Construction of Pipeline: Ø 24” X 16 mm (Thickness) x 48 KM, - 3 lines,

Other pipe lines are 20”, 16”, 14”, 10”, 8” and 6”. Plant Process Piping 0.2 Million-inch dia joint,

Installation of FW (Fire Water) Tank (Ø 36 Mtr x 12.5 Mtr. Height), 3 Mtr Ø x 4.5 Mtr height, 4 Nos Flare stack Etc., Typical Pipeline Construction Phases undergone during work: Survey=>Clearing & Grading=>Stockpiling & Stringing=>Field Bending=>Ditching & Excavation=>Welding=>Coating=>Lowering-In=>Backfilling=>Cathodic Protection=>Hydrostatic Testing=> Clean-up & Restoration


Survey: Issued for Construction (IFC) drawings. The references mark the safe limits of ROW (right of way) work areas. Clearing and Grading: Clearing and grading is the next phase after surveying, Cutting, removal, or burning of trees, debris, timber salvage etc from the pipeline ROW.

Stockpiling & Stringing: Materials are received at a marshaling yard or stockpiling site, typically located away from the right of way (ROW), for temporary storage. Stringing involves placing pipe joints end to end along the pipeline ROW. Field Bending: Field bending is an integral part of pipeline construction and refers to the set of activities associated with bending the pipe in the field so that it fits the shape of the ROW and trench. Ditching & Excavation: Excavation of trench in the right of way (ROW) for pipe installation. The ditching operations are after stringing, bending, welding, NDE, and Coating. Welding: Weld during pipeline construction is performed to join lengths of pipe together as the construction crew moves along the pipeline right of way (ROW).

Coating: Individual pipe joints are welded together during the construction process, the (girth) weld area requires coating in the field.

Lowering-In: Picking the pipe up from its temporary supports off the ROW and placing it into an excavated trench after welding, NDE, coating. The focus is to monitor pipe and coating integrity during lowering-in operation. Backfilling: Backfilling refers to refilling the trench with the previously excavated or new fill subsoil once the pipe section has been lowered into the trench.

Cathodic Protection: Cathodic protection (CP) is a technique used to control corrosion of a pipeline’s metal surface by making the pipeline the cathode of an electrochemical cell. Hydrostatic Testing: Hydrostatic test is a form of pressure testing used to confirm that the pipeline has acceptable strength and will not leak under operating conditions. Clean-up & Restoration: Construction site clean-up is the final cleaning and removal of construction material left over from the pipeline right of way (ROW) and surrounding area. All materials not native to the site are removed. PLANT INSPECTION: -

The coordination of inspection activities on pressure vessels, Tanks, Boilers, Heat exchangers, columns, furnaces, coolers, Strainers, Filters and process piping at offshore facilities as per API standards.
