To comply with the requirement for gas transmission pipelines in high consequence areas to have an integrity management program that includes an integrity assessment with an approved method, SCG chose to use an in-line inspection. They partnered with Woodard & Curran to take care of all its environmental services needs from start to finish as they undertook this project.
We were responsible for managing and conducting GIS desk-top analysis for over 150 miles of natural gas transmission pipeline throughout the states of Georgia and Tennessee, giving us insight into project conditions and sensitive environmental resources. Using the data we collected on wetlands, open waters, cultural or historic resources, and contaminated sites, we ensured SCG had a comprehensive awareness of potential concerns along the pipeline corridor.
Maintaining Compliance Throughout Project Completion
The data compiled in our field survey enabled us to provide the client with a comprehensive report that identifies on-site resources, necessary environmental permit requirements, and recommendations for best practices. We were responsible for all the environmental permitting, developing our approach for working with the necessary regulatory agencies with cost savings and project efficiencies at top of mind. Throughout construction, we also dedicated a full-time environmental inspector to the project to make suggestions that would represent the best interests of SCG and help them maintain compliance.
