REPAIR Program Update: First Year Perspective and What's Next

DOE’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy was established in 2009 to explore high-impact technologies that are too risky for the private sector. REPAIR (Rapid Encapsulation of Pipelines Avoiding Intensive Replacement) is a 3-year, $38 million program with ambitious goals for natural gas distribution pipes. The program seeks new technologies to rehabilitate the pipes, extending their life by 50 years, with minimal surface disruption while the pipes are live, and with a cost less than $1 million per mile.
