Epcon Partners was awarded the contract to provide chief, mechanical and civil inspection of six grassroots pump station facilities on the Bakken NGL pipeline. These six pump station facilities are located in eastern Montana and Wyoming.
Inspection included significant earthwork, civil, fabrication and construction in extremely remote locations. Inspectors were required to help maintain schedules and logistics of numerous contractors spread over various locations. Additional services included providing engineering resources and oversight for building HVAC systems.
This project consisted of constructing 12 buildings to house pump stations. Six pump stations are existing pump stations from the original Bakken NGL pipeline project. Six additional pump stations are the grassroots stations currently under construction during the expansion project.
All stations must be constructed and installed within live facilities. Epcon Partners was awarded the chief, mechanical and civil inspection for all 12 building installations.
