James Luk the owner of Hung Kee Plumbing, a second generation company, suppling services and products for Brunei water and waste water needs. Hung Kee selected DENLOK vitrified clay jacking pipe for this countries first microtunneling project. DN750 30" (750 mm) DENLOK pipe was successfully used for the microtunneling portion in 2 meter lengths. Additionally, Can Clay's open trench CanOLok pipes were used in 24" (600mm) and 27" (700mm) sizes for other portions of the project.

The pipes were loaded into containers at Can Clay's Cannelton, Indiana, USA plant. Transportation included 2000 miles of railroad movement and over 7500 miles of ocean shipping beginning to the intermediate port of Singapore. The containers were then transloaded to a smaller vessel for the final 1000 miles to Bandar Seri Bagawan, the capital.

The project included both open cut and microtunneling using vitrified clay pipe for the Jatung Collection System expansion.

Microtunneling was suggested to eliminate the costs and disruption at highway crossings and to conquer the difficult wet marine sediments.
