Trenchless Technology Solutions 

Murphy Pipelines is a trenchless utility contractor, established to bring the trenchless technologies of Europe to the United States.  The main focus is on pre-chlorinated pipe bursting, sliplining and CompressionFit HDPE pipe lining for water and force main replacement from 2" through 78". 


This experience allows us to confidently manage large pipeline projects in high profile and environmentally sensitive areas.  We have worked with municipalities, engineering firms and contractors throughout North America to rehabilitate valuable underground infrastructure.​

Our mission is to reduce community impact during pipeline construction.

Trenchless Project of the Year

Static Pipe Bursting

including Pre-chlorinated Pipe Bursting

for 2" through 24" water & force main replacement

Pre-chlorinated Pipe bursting

Pre-chlorinated pipe bursting has become the preferred water main replacement method in Europe, with over 100 million feet replaced in the past 30 years.  Today, this technology is being used by communities across North America as a solution to their aging infrastructure.

  • Lowest Overall Project costs

  • 86% less restoration - Environmentally friendly

  • Crews visible to homeowners for 1 day

  • Projects completed 42% faster

  • No new easement required

HDPE Pipe Lining

for 16" through 78" water transmission & sewer force main replacement

Swagelining Tight Liner HDPE

Most cities cannot afford to relocate and replace a large diameter pipeline (16” through 78”) within their vast utility network.  The result of the Compression Fit HDPE pipe lining technology is a new HDPE pipe which will be a ‘compressive fit’ inside the existing host pipe.  HDPE pipe lining offers remarkable value over other construction methods.


  • Increased flow rates over slip lining

  • Production of up to 5,000 feet in a single pull

  • Fully structural through thin walled HDPE can be installed dependent on host pipe condition

  • 91% less excavation

  • No new easement required
