Barr provided engineering services for a large pipeline company’s reversal project. Our work included preliminary engineering, capital cost estimate, laser scanning and modeling, detailed design engineering, soil borings and geotechnical engineering, purchasing assistance, and environmental permitting assistance.
The project included modifications to 11 pump stations and one new pump station. Most stations included two 1,500 HP mainline units; ultrasonic flowmeters; electrical service buildings and substations; PLC and controls; and civil work and fencing.
At some of the sites, we provided engineering services for 120,000 BBL storage and 3,000 BBL surge tanks, including foundations and dikes; tank manifolds; station booster pumps; and trap modifications.
Barr’s work for these projects typically began by laser scanning the site and developing a CADWorx model of the piping. We designed new station layouts, fitting the new pumps and piping in, while maintaining existing operations. We also provided mechanical, electrical, structural, civil, and geotechnical engineering services.
