1.     Decommissioning the old existing 20” pipeline, exposing the pipeline along its route where possible, cold cut and remove damaged sections to the dump site.

2.      Perform trenching at the tie-in points to create adequate work space for hot tie-in welding works.

3.     Construction of concrete sleepers and its installation along the pipeline route.

4.     Construction of the new ~200 meters above ground section which is to be installed on precast concrete pipe supports/sleepers through the client's proposed route.
