Gas Utilities

Promoting Natural Gas Pipeline Safety

Helping Gas Utilities Stay Safe and Solvent

Are you a utility owner or a gas pipeline contractor? Pro-Pipe understands that utilities strive to ensure safety for the community’s residents and its pipeline workers. We are here to help you achieve that very important goal.  

Protecting Communities from Disaster

Keeping homeowners, businesses and visitors to the community safe is vital for gas utilities. Natural gas explosions due to gas leaks can cause property damage, injury and even death. Pro-Pipe helps prevent this type of disaster before it occurs through industry leading cross bore inspections and utility locating programs.

Our cross bore programs help gas utility owners eliminate the risk that results when a gas line is inadvertently drilled through an existing pipeline, typically a sewer lateral or sewer main. This presents a scenario where the gas line could be cut or otherwise breached during routine plumbing maintenance conducted within the sewer line. The result can be natural gas entering the sewer system, creating extreme risk for an explosion. 

The Leader in Cross Bore Inspections

How does Pro-Pipe help? We offer a complete inspection, quality control, and data record management process to provide the assurance you need that your pipelines are free of cross bores. Our inspections are comprehensive, beginning with an examination of the sewer main from the manhole, moving through each connection and up the lateral to the foundation of the structure. When required, we gain approval for private property access and to complete inspections when the full access to the lateral sewer line is not possible from the sewer main.

By recording the locations of your pipelines and inspecting for deterioration and corrosion that can cause leaks, Pro-Pipe’s thorough examination provides the information gas utilities need to effectively maintain pipelines and help prevent explosions. Our cross bore programs are managed through a collaborative portal called Arc GIS where work orders and data deliverables can be managed and tracked in real-time.
