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 time and costs of complex archaeological studies and joint permits. Our team of experts conducted surveys, delineated wetlands, prepared permit applications, created GIS maps, and coordinated with regulatory agencies. Our distinct understanding of both natural gas infrastructure needs and compliance requirements led to shortening the pipeline route by almost 4,000 feet. The changes saved approximately four months of permit review time and an estimated $700,000 in construction costs.
