Pipeline Survey

A pipeline survey is a vital process for evaluating the condition. It helps determine whether these pipes require any maintenance or repair. It uses advanced technology to inspect pipelines without the need for extensive excavation or digging. By conducting regular surveys, potential issues within the pipes can be identified. Thus, it becomes easier to address them before they develop into more significant problems.

Surveying plays a crucial role in planning. It involves examining the land where new pipes are to be laid. This helps determine the precise position, depth, and length of the pipes in that area. There are various methods for this. The purpose of this survey is to prevent accidents during the installation of new pipelines.


Key Considerations for Pipeline Survey Planning

When planning a pipeline survey, several important considerations should be taken into account. Firstly, it's crucial to ensure the accuracy of the proposed pipeline route. Even slight deviations in direction or location can significantly impact the project's feasibility as pipelines can span over many miles of land.

Secondly, navigating the complex network of land ownership along the pipeline's route is essential. This may involve a mix of private and public property, each owned by different entities. Securing the necessary easements from these landowners is vital to grant developers access for performing pipeline installation and maintenance.

Lastly, surveyors should focus on identifying potential obstacles that could interfere with the pipeline. Additional surveys can help determine how these features can be accommodated within the pipeline's route.

Preliminary Pipeline Surveys

In the initial stages of pipeline planning, preliminary surveys are essential. They provide a thorough understanding of the terrain for the proposed pipeline route. These surveys help ensure the feasibility of the route and identify significant features. Taking precautions during this phase helps prevent potential issues. They may include cross-boring, where a new pipeline accidentally intersects with an existing one.

Routing and Staking

Following the preliminary survey, a routing pipeline survey is done. It finalizes the pipeline's path. Surveyors carefully note elevation changes and potential turns or bends in the pipeline route. This data helps to determine whether adjustments are needed, or if additional construction can resolve any challenges. Plus, the construction staking process ensures that this information is clearly marked above ground before the pipeline installation begins. This is particularly useful for pipeline sections on privately owned land. This is because it ensures that secured easements are correctly located.

As-Built Surveys

To meet building codes or lender requirements, as-built surveys are carried out while the pipeline is being installed in the ground. Surveyors document the final placement of the pipeline and compare it against the initial plans. This step confirms that the pipeline's installation complies with previously established requirements.


Pipeline Right-of-Way Characteristics

Preliminary Pipeline Surveys

A pipeline right-of-way is the land strip for building the pipeline. Its width varies, from 25 to 150 feet, depending on the pipe size. After the initial development, these rights-of-way must stay open, no matter who owns the land. If you get permission from a private landowner, they can still use the land but may need to give up some rights. For instance, they might have to give up the right to develop the land themselves.

Key Considerations of Pipeline Right-of-Way Planning

When planning your pipeline right-of-way, there are some key aspects to keep in mind. Gather detailed information about the proposed route. This can be made easier by using modern land surveying technology.

The reason for gathering precise information is crucial at this stage because it is when you need to define the project's specifics. For example, you must identify where you will need easements and the exact width of these easements need to be. To do this, you will collaborate with the landowner and an attorney. The attorney must be familiar with local pipeline regulations to establish a legally binding agreement.

Consider factors like stream crossings, agricultural developments, animal habitats, and historical areas. If your proposed pipeline right-of-way intersects with any of these, you might need to obtain a special permit to proceed with your project.

Our dedicated field crews, led by nationally licensed professional pipeline surveyors, have industry expertise and skills to support our clients in achieving their goals.

Navigating the Right of Way

When dealing with a big oil and gas development project, the task of surveying the pipeline's right-of-way is one of the most challenging aspects. While most development projects are concentrated in a single location, pipelines span vast stretches of terrain. This inevitably leads to situations where the pipeline passes through privately owned land. In such a common scenario, it makes sense to collaborate with the property owner to secure an easement. This agreement grants you the right to access the land during the pipeline's construction phase. This process ensures a smooth and legally compliant pipeline development.
