Seymour Johnson Rapid Jet Fuel Spill Response

Goldsboro, NC

Seymour Johnson AFB, NC, home to the 4th Fighter Wing and 916th Air refueling wing, had multiple leaks in their fuel piping previously installed in the 1950s.

At Seymour Johnson AFB, Conti performed investigation and repair of multiple pipeline leaks along a 10-inch JP-8 hydrant distribution pipeline under its Air Force contract to support the DESC testing program. The fueling system Conti inspected, prompting repair, consisted of five above ground storage tanks, 11,000 Lf of 10” steel pipeline and 8,000 lf of 8” steel pipeline. All tanks and piping were installed in 1958.

The team was tasked with determining the precise location, without excavation, of any leaks. However, due to the high groundwater and extensive contamination, numerous challenges were encountered and overcame while validating the leaks and repairing the pipeline. Multiple excavations were required in various locations to properly repair the leaking pipelines, along with building demolition.

Conti performed work around the clock during the evening and day time hours in coordination with the base schedule to avoid impacting the aircraft activities. Despite the challenges associated with site contamination, Conti completed this project ahead of schedule and with zero safety incidents.
