Michael Baker was the engineer of record for the design of a 4.5-mile, 12-inch steel natural gas transmission pipeline, city gate meter station and custody transfer station. The pipeline transports natural gas in a new cross-country right-of-way from two existing large-diameter gas transmission lines to a new natural gas-fired power generating plant near Towanda, Pennsylvania.
Our services on the project included alignment design, corrosion protection design, pipeline design, hydraulic and mechanical design, stakeholder coordination and construction support services. We utilized 3D pipe design modeling software to prepare detailed alignment drawings and perform hydraulic design, pipeline sizing, and gas temperature analysis for the pipeline design.
We provided the mechanical design, including instrumentation and electrical diagrams and mainline block valves and blow downs, for the city gate meter station and custody transfer station.
We coordinated extensively with our client, the owner of the new power plant, the owner of the gas transmission lines, third-party consultants and equipment vendors throughout the design process to ensure that all stakeholder requirements were met.
During construction we reviewed the construction contractor’s hydrostatic test plans and provided engineering design support services.
“We executed this project on an aggressive schedule by fast-tracking the preparation of construction bid documents prior to the completion of design and amending construction drawings on a continuous basis for the equipment at the city gate and custody transfer stations.”
