Liquid and Gas Pipeline Experience

Over the past 14 years, we have been involved in providing scheduling and project controls to a large number of pipeline projects.  Our involvement ranges from creating bid schedules, developing baseline schedules in both P6 and Tilos, project support during execution and claims analysis.  Here are some of the projects we have been involved in:

  • TransMountain Pipeline:  1150km liquid pipeline, across the Rocky Mountains, from Alberta to BC.  Petroglyph is providing on-site project controls support for a major contractor.
  • Coastal GasLink Pipeline:  670 km gas pipeline from NE BC to a new LNG facility in Kitimat, BC.  Petroglyph developed the Tilos template at the request of the owner and has on-site P6 and Tilos scheduling resources
  • Mountain Valley Pipeline: 303 mile gas pipeline from northwestern West Virginia to southern Virginia.  Petroglyph team members have been embedded in this project to provide scheduling, what-if analysis and reporting
  • Atlantic Coast Pipeline: 600 mile gas pipeline from West Virginia, through Virginia, to eastern North Carolina.  Petroglyph provided linear scheduling support to a number of contractors.
  • Qatari Gas – Development of  March chart for CO2 Pipeline
  • Keyera Kaps Project, Buckeye Express, Robb

Many other smaller pipeline projects have used our services. This includes Gulf Coast, Houston Lateral, Line 4 and others.
