Construction Process

During the construction phase of the Atlantic Sunrise project, approximately 8,000 jobs will be created, adding $870 million in economic value to the commonwealth. Once operational, Atlantic Sunrise pipeline will help millions of American homes and businesses gain access to affordable, reliable, environmentally responsible and domestically produced natural gas.

A pipeline construction project looks much like a moving assembly line. A large project typically is broken into manageable lengths called “spreads,” and utilizes highly specialized and qualified workgroups. Each spread is composed of various crews, each with its own responsibilities. As one crew completes its work, the next crew moves into position to complete its piece of the construction process.
