Job Description

When our client set out to construct a 52-mile natural gas pipeline, it found 34 miles of mature hardwood-forested wetlands, cypress swamps, and bayous in its path. Significant portions of the right of way were federally protected habitat for the threatened Louisiana black bear.
The solution?
We worked with our client, landowners, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, US Fish & Wildlife Service, US Army Corps of Engineers, and several state agencies to look afresh at construction methods. This delivered a cost-effective solution that could be permitted by the regulatory agencies, with additional horizontal directional drilling to avoid impacts to protected species habitat, wetlands, and water bodies.
The pipeline was successfully permitted and constructed.
