What We Do

Bond & Bolt

Here at Pipeline Energy Solutions, we are utilising an innovative technique for bag stop and camera insertion into low-pressure metallic mains, coupled with a standard flow stopping bag.

The Bond & Bolt method is highly cost effective in acquiring access to live gas mains, compared to other traditional approaches.

How it works

The Bond & Bolt system works by administering an adhesive to the shot blasted gas main, followed by placing the saddle in place. Four holes are then drilled under conditions, free of gas, before bolts are installed and ingrained with Series 6 resin.


There are many reasons to choose to use our Bond & Bolt process. Some of the benefits include:

Reduction in excavation costs due to less depth and size

• Reduced reinstatement costs

• Faster process from mobilisation for site to flow stopping

• Reduced disruption to public life (road closures) 

• Potential to avoid ‘deep excavations’ and a 1 year reduction in defect liability

Considering the reasons above, our process is very much favoured by our many clients across Scotland. If you’re interested in our affordable, effective, and efficient Bond & Bolt technique, get in touch and our dedicated team will be happy to answer any questions!
