Houston Hot Tapping Success Story
Thursday at 2PM, we had five TS&V's scheduled for Friday. A good day - but, nothing to worry about. By 5PM, there were ten taps on the books, including one requiring a FLG-FLG valve, which we do not keep in inventory.

We were quickly short on trucks, resources, and crews. However, we've never met a TS&V we did not like - we had to get it done.
The management team quickly convened and started "what-if" our schedule. We mixed/matched as necessary and contacted the crews - some came in Thursday night, others were slotted to load at 5AM. A runner was slotted to be in Beaumont when AFC, or valve supplier, opened - to pick-up the needed Flg-Flg valve.
During the course of the day - not once, but, twice, did we dispatch additional material as the expected main size/type was different than planned. We also re-routed two crews - as the TS&V's were not ready as planned. There were tap crews zig-zagging across Houston, meeting runners with parts, transferring job tickets... By 5PM - all taps were installed. Real-time job reports were delivered to our customers. Trucks were at the shop - getting prepared for what tomorrow would bring.
