Value Engineering Advances the Booming Oil and Gas Industry

The oil and gas industries are still booming for many West Texas communities, and they rely on water, a finite resource in the Permian Basin. Typically, water delivery systems to oil and gas operations aren’t permanent and don’t focus on efficiency. The team developed a system that allows water to be conveyed efficiently and safely, encouraging industry growth. Parkhill, Smith, and Cooper (PSC) and Garney Construction teamed to design and construct the $14,500,000 water transmission system to deliver a max flow rate of 250,000 barrels/day (Bbls/day) to support oil and gas operations. The project was fast tracked, so the team had to engineer solutions to deliver this system from concept to operation in fewer than 200 days.
