Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) Alternative

Many solutions exist to mitigate depth of cover issues or exposed pipelines; however, some are more efficient and cost-effective than others. Let’s compare two of the most common solutions for establishing adequate cover over pipelines: horizontal directional drilling and articulating concrete mats. What is Horizontal Directional Drilling? Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) is a trenchless method

Augmented Reality Sandbox

The Submar team was proud to present an augmented reality (AR) sandbox at a Supplier Showcase in 2018. We showed an elevation color map, topographic contour lines, and simulated water to demonstrate how our products, including the Submar articulating concrete revetment mattresses, and services, like streambank stabilization, protect exposed pipelines.

Project Memories: Conroe, Texas

Check out this time-lapse video of a lengthy construction project we started in January 2020 and completed in March 2020.   Background: Several pipelines cross a river in Conroe, Texas. A sandpit had expanded over time, and heavy flow had degraded the bed of the channel and eroded the banks, exposing and suspending the pipelines.

Protecting Offshore Pipelines

Scientists have begun discovering that the seafloor is eroding in much the same way as the land loss now occurring on the coast of Louisiana. This can mean a detrimental loss in the wake of powerful waves, hurricanes, and flooding to the offshore and inland infrastructure. The scientists are concluding that the seafloor should be considered

The Effects of Erosion on Our Ecosystems

Maintaining habitats is crucial to protecting native wildlife. Submar’s articulating concrete revetment mats allow vegetation and increase biodiversity while protecting oil and gas assets. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the coastlines of the United States lose one to four feet every year because of erosion. This also translates into economic costs and the

Native Plants Are Important Factors in Fighting Erosion

Barren soil cover is no way to maintain a healthy pipeline slope. Erosion greatly increases with exposed soil. Trees, shrubs, and groundcovers can maintain slopes and reduce erosion from surface water, shallow groundwater and, to some extent, coastal processes. Types of Vegetation That Work Best The short answer is the native plants of the region.
