The Challenge – 2015 Permian Basin.

Concho Resources needed to add 100 miles of 8 inch high pressure water line, stretching from south of Odessa right through the heart of the Permian Basin.

In 2015 there are countless surface lines, production lines, sales lines, water lines as well as Interstate highways, farm to market roads and major loops. How do you install a pipeline underneath all of these obstacles and do it in the time frame requested by management?

The Solution

Find a contractor who has a stellar safety record. Find a contractor that puts Safety as their top priority every day, all day. Find one that has a very aggressive drug policy. Find one that will consider the quality of the job done, to be as important as it is to the Oil Company.

The Results

After vetting other contractors including one of the biggest in the marketplace, COG hires LR Commercial Construction Inc. With Bert Vandiver, Andy Lella and Mark Livengood leading the company, LR arrived Permian Basin within 2 weeks of winning the contract with 40 people and equipment. LR’s team of managers and engineers had already mapped out a game plan on how to accomplish the task. Work began in late September of 2014 and the pipeline was finished on April 23, 2015.
