ROCKIES EXPRESS PIPELINE CONSTRUCTION
Location: Multiple States
Completion Date: July 2009
Phillips & Jordan Role: Subcontractor
The Rockies Express Pipeline (REX) is a 1,679 mile long natural gas pipeline system that spans from Rio Blanco County in Colorado to Monroe County in Ohio. REX is the largest natural gas pipeline built in the United States in more than 20 years, and is one of the largest ever built in North America. Construction of the REX was completed in November of 2009 at a total cost of approximately $5 billion.
Phillips & Jordan was contracted to support clearing of eight spreads of the REX. In total, Phillips & Jordan performed vegetation clearing and grubbing of more than 450 miles of pipeline right-of-way which measured 125 feet in width, reduced the vegetation using tub grinders and transported the material for final disposal, performed bush hog mowing of crop lands, constructed temporary fence gaps, and hauled and placed mats to allow for access to the right-of-way across wetland areas. Phillips & Jordan also provided “Hot Spot” crews to clear and grub construction right-of-way, additional work space, and access roads on an as needed basis.
