Approved by the Alberta Utilities Commission in January 2014, the Urban Pipeline Replacement (UPR) Program will see the high-pressure natural gas transmission pipelines in Edmonton and Calgary neighbourhoods recommissioned to lower pressure natural gas distribution service or abandoned and new, modern high-pressure natural gas transmission pipelines installed primarily within the Transportation/Utility Corridors (TUCs) that surround the cities. Somerville was responsible for the installation of the 12" PE lines in the City of Edmonton. The primary method of installation was by directional drill utilizing Somervilles JT30 size drills, and involved the installation of approximately 4000m of PE pipe. Installation was primarily within residential neighbourhoods. Somerville was responsible for all aspects of the job from planning and installation, to testing and tie-ins, traffic control, and reclamation to City standards.
