This project involved the extension of a natural gas pipeline from Gulf Breeze to Pensacola Beach. The project program included development of design and specifications for the installation of the 6” natural gas pipeline, including a 4,980’ compound directional drill across the Intracoastal waterway separating Gulf Breeze and Pensacola Beach, to Pensacola Beach. The primary objective was to provide natural gas service to the core business area of the beach. The immediate requests for service was so overwhelming that the City authorized the Engineers and Contractor to work as a team and provide proposals and a design for additional project phases until natural gas was available to the entire developed portion of Pensacola Beach, approximately 6 miles. Construction began in October 2011 and was completed in May 2013.
