Natural Gas Interconnect
Farnsworth Group provided engineering and surveying services for a 1.75 Bcfd natural gas interconnect that tied three Gulf Coast pipelines to Tallgrass Energy's Rockies Express Pipeline. The design required pressure control facilities and a lateral to connect the REX meter facilities to the Gulf Coast Pipelines. The design of the lateral line included approximately 2000’ of trenched pipe installation, the crossing of US-36 via conventional bore methods, the crossing of a large drainage ditch which was installed via open trench methods, and tying into the three existing Gulf Coast pipelines downstream of NGPL’s Hammond Compressor Station. The pressure control facilities were installed in an existing compressor station, and encompassed the mechanical, structural, electrical, and instrumentation design to conform to industry and client standards.
Farnsworth Group's services included route evaluation, survey, design and drafting, tie-in details, easement, exhibit preparation, contract documents, permitting assistance, and as-built drawings.
