APEX EXPANSION PROJECT – WASATCH LOOP CONSTRUCTION
Location: Multiple Counties, Utah
Completion Date: December 2010
Phillips & Jordan Role: Subcontractor
The $373 million Apex Expansion Project included the construction of approximately 28 miles of pipeline called the Wasatch Loop through the Wasatch Mountains in northern Utah. The project increased the amount of natural gas transported on the Kern River system by approximately 266 million cubic feet per day.
Phillips & Jordan was contracted to support clearing of Sections 1 – 8 of the project. In total, Phillips & Jordan performed vegetation clearing and grubbing of approximately 24 miles of pipeline right-of-way, reduced the vegetation using chipping or grinding methods, and disposed of the reduced debris through either placement within the right-of-way or burning. Due to the steep mountainous terrain within which the work was performed, Phillips & Jordan implemented additional safety measures to protect workers and their equipment.
