1. Pioneer Produced Water System

    Antero sought engineering support services from RETTEW to help transport produced water via pipelines to a semi-permanent treatment facility. From there, the treated produced water is transported to an existing freshwater impoundment with a permanent pump station for blending (in the pipeline) and distribution as blended water out to well pads. The existing freshwater distribution…

  2. Crosshole Geophysical Tomography for a Tunneling Project

    RETTEW’s Geophysics team recently assisted a client with a tunneling project. The tunnel path was at a depth at which surface geophysics could not resolve potential small zones of concern, including low-stiffness weathered rock that might require special support, and water-bearing seams that could flood the opening. The required resolution could only be achieved using…

  3. Aquatic Resource Data Quality Validation

    A natural gas client experienced delays with permit reviews submitted by other consulting firms because of concerns with the quality and reliability of their wetland data. Permit applications submitted by RETTEW for the client did not have similar delays in review. As a result, RETTEW provided quality control (QC) field reviews of stream and wetland…

  4. Ben’s Run Pumping Station

    As part of a large water system project, RETTEW provided services for two pumping facilities, with 20 miles of buried pipeline between them. The Ben’s Run Pumping Station withdraws water from the Ohio River via a submerged intake screen and intake pipe. The water is then collected in a wet well and pumped through 20-…

  5. Compressor Station 3D Scanning

    Turn-Key Specialists, Inc. (TSI), needed to obtain scans and 3D models for three separate compressor stations in Susquehanna County to help their client plan for additions to existing compressor stations and other potential construction activities. Because of our strong working relationship with TSI and the detail and quality of a previous high-definition scanning project we…

  6. Gathering Pipeline Phase I Archaeological Survey

    A natural gas client required assistance with permitting, field routing, designing, and constructing its first gathering system in the Marcellus Shale Formation. RETTEW provided archaeological investigation services to meet permitting requirements for construction of 8.5 miles of natural gas gathering pipeline intended to deliver gas from the client’s wells to a transmission pipeline, and ultimately…

  7. High-Angle Utility Locating

    A high-pressure natural gas pipeline located in a right-of-way between two existing pipelines required inspection to evaluate potential flaws and any need for repair. Prior to excavation, the client needed to adhere to PA One Call requirements to mark their assets. A portion of the right-of-way was brush- and snow-covered steep terrain, creating accessibility challenges…

  8. Midstream Pipeline Rerouting

    A natural gas client acquired a planned pipeline, with routing and landowner agreements already in place. However, the existing route would take months of additional regulatory review time, and the client was eager to get the gas to market as quickly as possible. RETTEW tackled the many steps to reroute the pipeline, avoiding the extra…

  9. Midstream Utility Locating Services

    A midstream natural gas company operating in Ohio’s Utica Shale region was mapping existing natural gas lines and wanted to protect their established infrastructure and ensure no utility line hits during their operations. The client called upon RETTEW to help coordinate the utility line mapping process because of our rapid response time, our highly skilled…

  10. Moxie Pipeline

    While our client’s business had expanded because of Marcellus Shale development and low gas prices, routing and permitting several miles of high-pressure transmission pipeline through the rolling hills of rural Pennsylvania was outside their normal project scope. So when Valley Energy, a Bradford County-based gas distribution company, considered how critical this pipeline was to building…
