What We Do

Pipeline Change of Service

Any pipeline change of service project requires detailed, rigorous planning to ensure effective execution. That’s what we do best.

Planning, Managing, Executing

Plex Projects specializes in pipeline change of service planning and execution, inclusive of pipeline decommissioning, pipeline abandonment, pipeline deactivation, pipeline reactivation and pipeline repurposing.

To do so, we take the Integrated Project Delivery approach. This approach ensures that everyone working on the planning and implementation of the project is fully involved throughout the entire duration of the project. This mean all construction and engineering consultants plan the work together, while engaging the project owner, then the team is responsible for implementing the field work.

Without following this model, things can fall through the cracks and major issues will arise. Integrated project delivery means the interest of every team member and party involved is aligned with the end-goal. It leaves little room for error, expensive setbacks or unforeseen risks to the public and the environment.

Precise planning anticipates challenges and provides solutions.

During any pipeline decommissioning, abandonment, pipeline deactivation or reactivation and pipeline re-purposing project, there will be challenges. Plex Projects has the knowledge and expertise to anticipate and prepare for these challenges, offering professional pipeline hazard mitigation and cost-effective solutions.

Every pipeline is different, and so each pipeline change of service plan should be unique.

All pipeline change of service projects present unique conditions. These can include specific physical characteristics, location, operation history, public perception, environmental factors and future land use. For each project, these conditions must be considered when creating a pipeline decommissioning or abandonment plan and all planning must be compliant to regulatory requirements as per CSA – Z662, Oil and Gas Pipeline Systems.

Plex Projects will run an assessment of risk on all components involved including perceived and actual risk to the environment, public, personnel and nearby infrastructure like parallel pipelines, roadways, railways and utility crossings.

The goal of each project is to create a detailed and optimized plan for execution. If not planned properly, a pipeline change of service project can become unpredictably costly and time consuming.
