SOUTH JERSEY GAS

After an evlauation of the existing and reasearching the future buildup of the area of Wildwood NJ it was determined that a new, larger transmission main would be needed to meet the predicted demand for natural gas. The plan, designed by South Jersey Gas Co. and implemented by J. Fletcher Creamer & Son, Inc., eventually included the installation of 15,000 LF of 12" steel gas main to replace the soon to be inadequate 8" line. The scope of work also included a new regulator station.

Much of the work depended on trenchless technology. The jack & bore method was used to cross access ramps to a major New Jersey highway, the Garden State Parkway. In another area horizontal directional drilling was utilized to install the new mains under the "Grass Sound Channel" at depths of 40 feet for much of the 2,000 LF length of the drill.
