Portable trailer flare for pipeline service in Northeast USA -- Near residential area

Protecting the public by cleaning, maintaining and
replacing natural gas & product pipelines, NAO provides
the pipeline companies and their service contractors with
safe environmentally friendly methods of gas & product control.

In many parts of the USA and Canada, pipelines that were
originally constructed along rural rights-of-ways, are now
dangerously close to more populated areas as these areas
expanded with population & growth.

Texas Eastern Pipeline Maintenance 1987 -- Eastern Pennsylvania 

Example:  Texas Eastern -- Upgrading & Maintenance -- Late 1980's
One neighbor built their in ground swimming pool less that 10' from
the pipeline -- not the right-of-way but the centerline of the pipeline.
Had the pipeline been hit during construction of the swimming pool,
a major accident could have occurred.

The consequences of a gas pipeline explosion that caused the tragic deaths of 11 campers in New Mexico
would have been even more catastrophic if the explosion occurred in a populated section of a city, town
or village in the Northeastern USA, California, Texas, Alberta or Ontario, where houses have been erected
close to the pipeline.

NAO has worked with major pipelines and product companies through the USA and Canada for nearly 20 years
with a wide range of safety and environmental products to control gases, odors and liquids from their pipelines,
pig catchers, pumping/compressor stations and storage terminals.
