Mustang completes Lake Pontchartrain pipeline.

Mustang, part of international energy services company John Wood Group PLC, has completed work on a 37-mile, 14-inch hydro gen pipeline for Air Products. The pipeline, constructed between Norco and Chalmette, LA, traversed Lake Pontchartrain, where it was buried under the lake-bed. Among the project challenges was the requirement that the pipeline cross two hurricane protection levees. Both were safely crossed under the watchful care of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The pipeline links to Air Products' existing hydrogen pipeline system, creating a more than 150-mile continuous pipeline network with what will be 15 hydrogen production source points. Mustang provided project management, engineering, design, right-of-way services, mapping, drafting, surveying, environmental permitting, and inspection for the project.

Mustang President Steve Knowles commented, "We are pleased to have been an integral part of this unusual and challenging project. It was the first pipeline to cross Lake Pontchartrain since Hurricane Katrina, and by using an existing pipeline corridor, our project team was able to reduce the potential environmental impact."
