Pipeline Construction

Troy Construction has the capability to manage up to four mainline spreads simultaneously, installing pipe ranging from 2” to 42”.

To date, Troy has completed single projects as large as 167 miles of 36” and 345 miles of 20” as well as numerous projects in the last 66 years. Troy Construction does not only pursue large pipeline projects, we have several crews that are dedicated to performing small projects just as enthusiastically.

If your project requires barge work, marsh work, directional drills, rock trenching, blasting or just typical pipeline construction, we can handle it. We don’t care to be the biggest pipeline contractor, we just strive to be the best.

Client: Praxair
Date: 08/2016
Location: Texas

The Praxair Dual 14" and 24" pipeline project consists of approximately 45 miles of dual lines (90 miles of pipe) from Freeport, TX to Texas City, TX. The original scope consisted of four spreads, however, Troy Construction was able to present a cost savings plan and schedule to complete the project with one spread and maintain the client's deadline. The project has 22 bundled drills, 2 overhead pipe bridges, and parallels an existing pipeline through a pipeline corridor. The right of way crosses 4 miles of the Brazoria National Wildlife Refuge where construction activities are preformed under a special use permit with stringent environmental requirements.

Client: Dow
Date: 07/2016
Location: Texas

Troy Construction is currently installing approximately 78 miles of 12" pipeline for Dow Chemical that will be used to transport Ethane from Freeport, Texas to Mont Belvieu, Texas. The project includes 135 bores and 62 Horizontal Directional Drills, including a Directional Drill of over 11,000 feet that crosses the Clear Creek Channel Near Kemah Texas. Troy Construction is installing 13 valve sites along the route of the project as well as makign connections to existing Dow facilities in three locations. Even with historic amounts of rainfall occurring during the duration of the project, we are currently on track to meet our originally scheduled completed date with zero safety incidents.

Client: Koch
Date: 03/2016
Location: Texas

This project consisted of installing 34 miles of 10" steel pipeline for crude service, removing 29 miles of the existing line and abandoning the remaining in place with grout or nitrogen. The line started at Koch's Midway Station near Taft and traveled Southwest around Nueces Bay, under Interstate 37 and the Nueces River, and terminated at Koch's Agua Dulce Station. Special precautions were required during removal of the existing line due to the presence of asbestos coating material (ACM). Troy Construction managed the removal, hauling and cleaning of the ACM coated pipe. The project scope also included (2) Mainline Valves, (12) Road Bores and (18) Horizontal Directional Drills, one of which was nearly 2 miles long under Calallen and the Nueces River.

Client: Williams Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Company
Date: 09/2015
Location: Virginia

Troy Construction completed 99 miles of 24” natural gas pipeline for Williams Transcontinental. The project falls under the FERC regulations and is running from Chatham to Freeman Virginia where Troy Construction is paralleling an existing 20” gas line for 91 miles. This project includes four directional drills, one is 5,471’ in length, which also includes 89 road bores, five railroad bores, and approximately 420 waterbody crossings, along with 15 miles of rock blasting.

Client: Plains All American — Gardendal to Three Rivers
Date: 12/2014
Location: Texas

Troy Construction recently completed 67 miles of 20” crude pipeline for Plains All American Pipeline. The project ran from near Cotulla to Three Rivers, TX and was completed well ahead of the required in service date. This project included six directional drills, one of which was in an extremely sensitive cultural area. It was very important to complete this section of the project without incident as the previous HDD in this area resulted in a frac out which caused the Corps of Engineers to halt all work on the project for many months. We were successful in completing the HDD with no frac outs. The project was a great success and due to the safety statistics, professional execution and management of the project.

Client: Phillips 66 — Sweeny Midstream Spread D
Date: 11/2015
Location: Texas

Troy Construction completed installing approximately 30 miles of 18” pipeline for Phillips 66. Starting at Gulf Coast Fractionators in Mont Belvieu, Texas and running southeast toward Friendswood, Texas the line runs through some of the most congested and demanding pipeline right of way areas in the Houston Metro area including parts of the Exxon Corridor. Through the course of laying the line Troy Construction will oversee 30 Horizontal Directional Drills including one of more than 2 miles in length under the Houston Ship Channel. We also will be utilizing the newly developed ‘Direct Bore’ technology on three bore sections. This technology was chosen over the conventional road bore methods due to the greatly improved safety factor involved. Always with an eye on safety, Troy Construction has managed to work through some of the most difficult areas on this project with zero safety issues or concerns. The project is scheduled to be completed in August of 2015 and is currently on track to meet that deadline.
