Building large-scale oil and gas pipelines takes some big help from a big fleet of big equipment. From construction machinery staples to specialized equipment, these behemoths perform the heavy pipeline jobsite duties of clearing the right of way, hauling materials, digging holes, installing the pipe and finally restoring the landscape to its original condition. The Big Equipment Handbook highlights 11 key equipment categories that pipeline contractors need to build a pipeline from cradle to grave.
Based on feedback from our readers and in an effort to improve our handbook, we have added dozers to the equipment listings for 2017. These crawler tractors play an integral role in pipeline construction projects from beginning to end and our goal is to be the most comprehensive spec guide for pipeline construction equipment in the industry.
With the newest edition of the Big Equipment Handbook, we’ve compiled all the information you need to make an informed decision about the equipment you need to get the job done. With equipment details and specs, the top manufacturers have provided a snap-shot of the product offerings for Land Clearing, Pipe Handling, Crawler Carriers, Pipe Bending, Trenchers, Hydraulic Excavators, Vacuum Excavators, Horizontal Directional Drilling Rigs, Auger Boring Machines, Dozers and Restoration machinery, including padders and hydro-seeders.
