In 2012, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) launched its Natural Gas Pipeline Modernization Program dedicated to strengthening and improving the integrity and safety of its natural gas transmission system in Northern California over the next decade. PG&E planned for safety and reliability upgrades to its natural gas transmission system and hired a handful of contractors who could help them accomplish this goal under an Alliance Program structure. In addition to the challenging physical construction work that has to cross crowded urban neighborhoods as well as rural and agricultural terrain, the Alliance Partners were selected to help plan and estimate each segment of the work.
Barnard rose to the challenge and since January 2013 has been assigned to manage and work in a region in Northern California. In addition to serving as an Alliance Partner in coordinating these efforts, Barnard is conducting natural gas pipeline construction, testing, valve replacement and integrity management services in the field. This includes work on pipelines ranging in size from 4-inch to 42-inch-diameter. Working with PG&E, our Teams in the field are addressing pipeline safety, particularly in high-consequence, populated areas.
