History

Since 1936 R.L.Coolsaet Construction Company has been building a record of solid performance in our field. We have qualified personnel, first-class equipment and available finances to successfully complete any pipeline project from small diameter to forty-two inch in size. The excellence of our past performances for major oil companies and pipeline firms has prompted them to request our services often in several states across the country. Coolsaet has the experience, expertise and equipment necessary to handle your next project, from concept through design engineering and fabrication to final installation.

Pipeline

Coolsaet has extensive experience in the laying of pipelines for both natural gas and product lines. We are capable of installing all sizes and types of piping for cross country projects as well as flow meters, gas wells and gathering systems. We have the equipment and manpower necessary to provide the testing of pipelines that our clients require. In addition to the initial testing, we have also been employed to perform periodic testing for the detection of leaks or other problems. After diagnosis, rehabilitation efforts are undertaken by Coolsaet which effectively repair the damaged pipeline.

Distribution

In our experiences we have installed numerous mains for the distribution of gas, residential and commercial gas service lines and conduit for electricity and telephone. In certain situations, joint trenches are utilized as an alternative to separate utilities gas, electric, phone and cable television. Thus, lowering cost through reduced energy and manpower expenditures. Coolsaet is also skilled in construction of manholes and the installation of pipe and equipment for town border stations, regulator stations and regular vaults. Our concern for maintaining the safe condition of pipelines is evidence by our efforts in the areas of corrosion control and renewal work.

We are capable of handling all the construction associated with the installation or replacement of equipment for each of these facilities.
