Natural Gas Pipeline Job Completed

When a national oil and gas pipeline directional drilling company needed rental equipment for a two-month project in Bay City, Texas, earlier this year it could have selected any one of the several rental firms near the job site.

The directional drilling company had a track record of positive experiences with the Neff Rental branch, and was reassured that it would continue to receive Neff’s 24/7 service and support, as well as quality equipment on the Bay City project.

The project involved horizontal directional drilling several thousand feet of 32-inch HDPE pipeline from three natural gas wells to a central collection station. The company positioned four rented 210 excavators at each of the pipelines to muscle the fused pipes through the bores.

When each of the pipes was in place, the company tested them for leaks by pressurizing the pipes with water from a rented water truck with an attachment modified for three-inch and six-inch rented pumps.

Because the directional drilling company was under a tight two-month deadline to complete the project, its crews worked every day. The Neff Rental Texas City team kept pace with the company’s work schedule, dispatching road technicians to the job site afterhours and on weekends to repair and service equipment if and when needed.

The directional drilling company completed the project before the deadline, enabling the natural gas drilling companies to use the pipelines sooner than expected.

Prior experiences with Neff Rental reassured the directional drilling company that with Neff’s assistance it could complete the job on time. Neff Rental’s follow through on the Bay City project reinforced the dependability of its Texas City branch to deliver quality equipment, provide 24/7 service and support, and customize solutions to meet the customer’s needs.

Whether horizontally directional drilling natural gas or oil pipelines, telecommunications projects, electrical transmission and distribution systems, water lines or sewerage pipes, consider Neff Rental for your next project. Call the closest branch to your project at 888-709-NEFF, or visit
