The company's land division has played a prominent role in the construction of many of the major pipeline systems currently operating in the United States. Associated has successfully installed pipelines in virtually all geographic areas of the nation, including Alaska. The work in Alaska included the installation of 145 miles of the 800 mile, 48-inch Alaska Pipeline System. As a result of its efforts, Associated was selected to perform the final phases of work on all sections of the pipeline, including making the final tie-in weld to complete the entire system. In 1991, the company installed 145 miles of 36-inch pipeline in Utah as part of the 900 mile, Kern River Gas Transmission System, which is now delivering natural gas from Wyoming to the San Joaquin Valley of California. The company was again honored to be the contractor selected to make the final tie-in weld signifying completion of the entire project.
To Associated, it is essential that contracts are executed and completed in a professional and timely manner. Construction professionalism and on-schedule production have been important factors in the long-standing and continuing working relationships that the company has with many of its clients.
Starting in 1955, Associated was among the first U.S. pipeline contractors to enter the international pipeline construction market, performing projects in Turkey, Holland, Germany and France. Associated has continued its international capabilities in Canada, Mexico and Argentina. Also, through equal partnership with Tamimi & Fouad, the oldest pipeline contractor in Saudi Arabia, Associated has participated in pipeline construction projects throughout the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
