Rockaway Delivery Lateral Project

Williams Gas Pipeline
Rockaway, Queens, New York

Saratoga Associates retained by Williams to develop a video animation illustrating the horizontal directional drilling (HDD) method of pipeline construction. Horizontal directional drilling technology enables Williams to avoid sensitive environmental areas while burying the pipe at depths greater than could be achieved with traditional trenching.

Saratoga Associates developed a detailed three-dimensional model of both on and off-shore components of a representative HDD project, and scripted and produced a five-minute video presentation that is used by Williams to educate stakeholders and interested parties about this unique method of pipeline construction.
