Aggregate Production For Oil & Gas Pipelines
The construction process for oil and gas pipelines requires an enormous quantity of aggregate for grading, creating access roads, soil reclamation, and many other activities. Melgaard Construction owns several aggregate pits, for easy access to product.
Melgaard Construction is proud to produce a variety of different aggregates in-house, which saves both time and money on our pipeline construction projects and makes the process more efficient.
Melgaard Construction: Always Ready
Producing our own aggregate means that minimal time is wasted trying to find and procure aggregate from local suppliers. There are no deals to be made, no miscommunications to be had – we know what we need and we produce exactly that. We can also provide aggregate for existing pipeline constructions throughout Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming. Our production capabilities include:
- Rip Rap
- Fill dirt (Subsoil)
When laying hundreds of miles of pipeline, construction teams often have to partner with dozens of quarries and aggregate providers if they are unable to provide for their own needs. Melgaard Construction circumvents this problem and we can crush and screen in our own pits with our own plants.
Aggregate For Every Stage of Pipeline Production
Before pipeline construction can even begin, the right of way (ROW) must be cleared and graded to make a flat path for our construction equipment. This is difficult on some of the rough terrain in Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming, and requires the use of fill dirt to make a path that’s both accessible to and safe for heavy equipment. Access roads also require dirt and gravel – some temporarily, but some permanently, which will be left for regular access to pipe checkpoints, pumping stations, and valve sets.
Once the pipe is laid and the final grading and reclamation takes place, topsoil is needed, which is often the original soil that was removed; however, if this soil is insufficient to create a smooth grade, additional topsoil may be needed with a similar composition to the original.
In these cases, different kinds of aggregate are needed to get the job done correctly. We create this aggregate to the exact specifications for the project, then arrange to transport it directly to the construction site for a streamlined and efficient approach to pipeline construction.
