Enterprise Meeker Lateral

The Meeker Lateral consisted of 48 miles of 16 inch pipe stretching from the Meeker Gas Plant at Piceance Creek, Co. to Dragon Station, UT. NCI was retained to provide the environmental and BLM third party compliance inspection. Challenging aspects included steep topography (an altitude change of 1700 feet in ¼ of a mile) extreme winter conditions (hydrotesting at minus 17°) and poor access. The steep corridor off Cathedral Bluff required suspending track hoes down the face of the bluff to ROW going down and dig trench coming up.
