What Does the Natural Gas Pipeline Replacement Process Look Like?

Posted by Edward Dill on Jul 19, 2017 10:13:00 AM

Across the country, natural gas pipelines are in need of replacement. Gas pipelines are some of the most vulnerable components of American infrastructure, and many in-use pipelines in the U.S. are 40, 50, 60 years old - or older.

Aptus Group specializes in the replacement of natural gas pipelines attached to bridge structures throughout the U.S. We’ve worked on well over 2,300 bridges to ensure the attached utilities are safe, functional, and efficient. We have spent decades honing our process and are proud to be one of the most well-known names in natural gas pipeline replacement. Here’s what our process looks like.
