Barnard works closely with PG&E to address pipeline safety, particularly in high-consequence, populated areas.

Since January 2013, Barnard Pipeline, Inc. has been a “Strategic Partner” in Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s (PG&E’s) Natural Gas Pipeline Modernization Program. This 10-year program is designed to strengthen and improve the integrity, safety, and reliability of PG&E’s natural gas transmission system. The work spans a range of environments, from rural or agricultural terrain to crowded city streets and urban neighborhoods. As a Strategic Partner, Barnard manages and works in a region in Northern California and assists PG&E in planning and coordinating projects. Barnard also performs natural gas pipeline construction, testing, valve replacement, and integrity management, working on pipelines ranging in size from 4 to 42 in. in diameter.
