Diesel Progress Goes Trenchless

In August of 2023 the Michael Byrne Mfg. D72-1.5M Auger Boring machine was called into action on the California Coast to alleviate HWY 1 washouts from the spring season storms.  Pacific Boring, located in Caruthers, California, was awarded the bid for this emergency job in Santa Barbara County.  The job required 140 ft. of 60″ casing be installed at a negative 15% slope through challenging ground conditions.

Diesel Progress magazine contributor Meredith Pierick was on site to observe the “Secret Weapon” being utilized to perform this difficult installation.  See the article that appeared in the Diesel Progress November/December 2023 issue: Diesel Progress November / December 2023 | Powered by Pocketmags

Pipelines Are The Safest Delivery Method

The delivery of Natural Gas via pipelines continues to be the most cost effective and safest delivery method. Studies continue to verify pipelines as the safest and most environmentally safe delivery method  https://www.aga.org/research/fact-sheets/pipeline-safety/.  The export of LNG has recently made the United States the number one exporter of LNG.  The export of LNG strengthens the US economy and provides a source for our Allies to source compared to competitive nations that are not friendly to the United States.  Natural Gas is also firing many of our electric generation plants and driving down the carbon footprint for these institutions making electric cars, LNG vehicles, and a whole new industry more environmentally friendly. The advances in trenchless technology as well as tried and trusted methods like auger boring used in conjunction with Guided Pilot Bore machines continue to make the installation and maintenance of pipelines among the safest ways to install and transport materials.
