Delano Pressure Betterment Project – Delano, CA

As prime contractor for this project, Lyles Utility Construction installed over 6,100 LF of 8” polyethylene gas piping and constructed an in-line pressure regulating station to increase both the pressure and volume of natural gas in The Southern California Gas Company’s existing distribution system.  These pipeline pressure and volume upgrades were necessary in order to provide gas service to a new high volume food processing client.  Due to high traffic in the area, a horizontal directional boring unit was utilized to install the pipeline, limiting the impact of construction on the surrounding community. In addition to the new service installed, we tied-over six existing services from the existing pipeline to our new pipeline and completed three complete service replacements.  All piping was strength tested to confirm its safety, and ensure that it is in accordance with The Gas Company’s Standard Practices.
