Pipeline Construction Overview
North America’s growing demand for oil and natural gas delivery drives us to constantly improve the way our pipelines are conceived and constructed. KPI stands at the forefront of the pipeline construction industry as a diversified pipeline construction contractor with unmatched experience, critical expertise, innovative solutions, care for the safety of our people and the environment, and the right equipment to get the job done every time.
At KPI, we offer a unique set of pipeline services unmatched anywhere in the oil & gas industry. We can provide: pipeline construction, integrity service and subcontractor management.
We are experienced in the construction of 2 in. to 60 in. pipelines including mainline cross country construction utilizing mechanized or manual welding methods in a variety of geographic terrains encompassing prairie, muskeg, heavily forested and mountainous regions.
KPI’s current capacity includes two mainline spreads of modern pipeline construction equipment. We can also provide qualified inside plant construction, handling above and underground piping in and around oilsands related mines, SAGD and upgrader facilities.
Pipeline Integrity Service
If your pipeline infrastructure is already in place, look to KPI for non-destructive examination of pipe and/or hydrostatic testing of operated pipeline to certify their ability for continual service.
Our pipeline integrity services include:
- Investigative digs
- Hydrostatic retests
- Pipeline conversions (gas to oil and vice versa)
- Sleeve/Clock springs installation
We are able to self-perform most required activities, but also have the capability and experience to outsource many unique or specialized activities to our network of qualified subcontractors. It is often the smartest and most cost-effective solution for managing maintenance and small project work across a broad geographical area.
