Installation of a pipeline gathering system (indicated by the colored line in the map below) will facilitate future delivery of produced oil, gas, and water from well sites to processing/delivery sites outside of Broomfield. The pipeline installation will occur in phases.
Location of Upcoming Construction Activity: The work permits will allow installation of Segments 1 and 2 (S1 and S2) and Crossing 1 (C1) of the pipeline generally located south of Northwest Parkway, west and south of Sheridan Parkway, and west of Lowell Boulevard as shown in the map below.
What to expect during construction: All access and construction activity will be within a 100 foot temporary work easement area along the pipeline corridor. Initial operations will include clearing the pipeline construction area of vegetation and grading the surface, followed by trenching and pipeline installation equipment, along with welding, inspections, and pressure testing. Finally, the work area will be backfilled and reclaimed to establish new surface vegetation. During this pipeline installation a variety of equipment is utilized, an example is shown in the equipment section of this document.
Estimated Schedule: Initial construction is expected to continue over the next few weeks including Saturdays, Nov. 10 and 17, and Veterans Day, Nov. 12. These sections/crossings are expected to be completed within 1 to 2 months after commencement of activities. Per City and County of Broomfield (CCOB) Standards and Specifications, all work within CCOB boundaries must have an approved permit. The approved permits allow work to be performed between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Any and all work outside of these hours and days require a Saturday/Holiday work permit. Saturday/Holiday work permit approval is dependent upon the work that needs to be completed and the availability of inspection and/or third party test engineers. The Saturday/Holiday work permits only allow for work to be performed between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. These work hours are strictly enforced with the possible exception of when work is being conducted in areas remote from residences, and only at the discretion of the CCOB inspector.
(Exact start dates, and duration of construction is estimated and subject to change based on a variety of issues like permit approval, contractor availability and weather.)
