Line WB2VA runs from the Line WB system in Hardy County, West Virginia southeast to the Line VA and VM systems in Greene County, Virginia.
Columbia Gas Transmission’s Line WB2VA
Integrity Project is an effort to enhance the pipeline integrity of the existing Line WB2VA pipeline. The goal of this pipeline integrity project is to modify portions of the existing WB2VA line to facilitate the use of the smart pig inline inspection technology. This technology will permit Columbia Gas Transmission to obtain more complete and thorough information concerning the condition of the pipeline, including the detection of corrosion, cracks, laminations, deformations or other defects.
The Line WB2VA Integrity Project will involve the installation of various pieces of auxiliary equipment, including launchers and receivers, replacement of existing mainline valves, replacement of an existing dual pipe river crossing, and replacement of short sections of existing pipeline within or proximate to existing compressor stations, to create a common diameter pipeline from beginning to end that can be internally inspected using smart pigs.
