HT Engineering was founded in 1972 to provide specialized engineering and technical services to the petroleum and natural gas industries for production, transportation, distribution and utilization projects. Today, our professional team carries on the firm’s original commitment to engineering excellence and client satisfaction.
From its founding in 1972 through the 1990s, HT Engineering's primary focus was serving clients involved in the development of the Antrim shale formation in northern Michigan. While Antrim production has slowed down, we continue to support these clients in the safe operation, maintenance, and regulatory compliance of their production, gathering, treatment, and transmission facilities.
Throughout the 1980s and 1990s we also worked on an expanded assortment of pipeline projects for clients ranging from utilities to local governments to industrial and manufacturing facilities, and products ranging from crude and natural gas to carbon dioxide, oxygen, and nitrogen.
Since 2001, our team has been building capability and capacity in the integrity management of welded steel pipelines. We are currently involved in every aspect of the integrity management process, from threat identification to assessment management, repair plan development to dig, inspection, and repair management, and data integration to risk assessment. In addition to in-line inspections and hydrostatic tests, we manage integrity programs for water crossings, depth of cover, theft, above ground storage tanks, and corrosion.
At the same time, we have built extensive experience in the engineering, design, and management of integrity- and risk-driven projects. Station piping modifications, pump, meter, and strainer replacements, launchers and receivers, pipeline nitrogen displacements, replacing and bringing valves above grade, emergency flow restricting device installations, and HDD pipe replacements are what we work on every day.
We've built our team around the beliefs that character matters as much as skills and knowledge, that a healthy balance includes both youthful energy and tech savvy and the wisdom and experience that come with age, and that our success is directly tied to the value we provide our clients. We are employee owned, and in it for long haul. We believe that earning our clients' trust and sustaining good relationships will be far more worth while in the end than focusing on short-term gains.
We recently added corrosion management and automation support capability and capacity, and are actively seeking clients who need our help in these areas.
