Mainline Integrity Investigations

In 2013 Ahtna Construction was awarded 2 portions of the X513 Mainline Integrity Investigations Project – Release A (fall work) and Release C (summer Work). The overall scope consisted of 9 mainline pipe excavations on the Trans Alaska Pipeline System at mileposts 515.44, 574.49, 590.23, 593.87, 756.74, 757.87, 783.61, 794.64 and 798.97. Several of the excavations were located on steep slopes (PLMP 783.61 – 46% grade and PLMP 756.74 . 50% grade) that required special consideration and planning to complete the job safely. Work activities included road construction, pipe excavation, asbestos sampling and abatement, sandblasting, painting, cathodic protection installation and repair, slurry form and pour, backfill, and site restoration.
