Enbridge Energy selected Price Gregory International, a Quanta Services company, for its Line 78 Pipeline Project. Quanta announced the project Feb. 2.
Price Gregory’s scope of work includes the construction and installation of approximately 79 miles of new 36-in. diameter crude oil mainline pipe, which will begin at Enbridge’s Flanagan Terminal near Pontiac, Illinois, and travel northeast to Enbridge’s terminal near Griffith, Indiana. In addition, Price Gregory was selected to build and install the pumping station for Line 78 at the Flanagan Terminal and to make modifications to the Griffith terminal.
Construction of the Flanagan pumping station and modifications of the Griffith terminal began in late 2014. Construction of the Line 78 pipeline is expected to begin this March with completion anticipated in the fall of 2015.
Quanta Services continues to have a positive outlook for the North American mainline market. There are oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids mainline projects in various stages of development throughout North America that should move forward as they obtain regulatory approvals. Quanta is in active discussions with various customers about many of these projects.
