Pipeline Right of Way Clearing

Pipeline right of way clearing is an important aspect of our right of way clearing services. Pipelines serve a critical role in local and national infrastructures, transporting vital resources all across the country. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, “The United States maintains around 2 million miles of natural gas distribution mains and pipelines, 321,000 miles of gas transmission and gathering pipelines, 175,000 miles of hazardous liquid pipeline, and 114 active liquid natural gas plants connected to natural gas transmission and distribution systems.” Delaware has 3,105 miles of pipeline and Pennsylvania has 60,417 miles of pipeline.

Keeping these areas and surrounding access roads clear of excessive trees and brush helps technicians, engineers, and other personnel access the pipelines easier. For example, a work crew going to a pipeline for repairs might be blocked by thick trees or branches, making it challenging for them or their vehicles to reach the pipeline. With a clear right of way, workers can easily access their work sites in a timely manner and maintain productivity.

Clearing excessive foliage around pipelines also helps increases safety. All underground pipelines are protected under the Homeland Security Agency. Each week pipeline companies use aircraft to fly over their pipelines to ensure that no one is digging or otherwise tampering with the utilities. With too many trees, spotting anyone digging or possibly compromising the safety and functionality of the pipelines is difficult or impossible. Keeping the right of way clear ensures that the planes can easily monitor the area.

The storage facilities or “Tank Farms” also need their perimeters cleared of vegetation so that no intruders can enter. We provide services to clear these areas using our spider lift, bucket trucks, and brush hogs.
