The density of the international pipeline network is increasing all the time to secure global demand for oil and gas. Over 900 projects with 300,000 kilometers of pipelines are being planned worldwide.
The worldwide production of oil in 2040 will exceed 115 million barrels a year. At the same time, global gas production will be over 186 trillion cubic feet per year.
With our technology, you'll pass under even the most challenging obstacles safely
At topographical key points, with Herrenknecht tunnelling technology new connections are created to push the rapid expansion of pipeline networks around the world.
Whether through deserts, waterways or over mountains – pipelines often stretch over thousands of kilometers to transport resources such as oil and gas to their destinations. Again and again small and large obstacles have to be crossed under in order to create new connections on the direct and thus shortest path. At these key points, drilling contractors around the world use our technologies to install hundreds of kilometers of pipelines per year, quickly, safely and economically. Herrenknecht machines and methods can cope with tight space constraints and install underground pipelines in all geologies. Exactly where they are needed.
Around the globe, every year hundreds of kilometers of pipelines are installed underground using our tunnelling technologies and methods. For your project this means:
In pipeline construction, topographical barriers such as rivers, lakes or dense urban development often interfere with the direct route. At these key points, Herrenknecht's innovative installation technology blazes its own trenchless trail.
