Geospatial Corporation has completed more than 50 pipeline mapping projects under its recently introduced Quality Assurance Locational Integrity Management program for major oil and gas companies across the southeastern U.S.
“Every energy company managing pipelines realizes the critical need to maintain accurate and complete information on these pipelines, including location and depth,” says Todd Porter, president of Geospatial’s energy group based in Houston. “While, as a first step, each of these initial projects are relatively small, we are now discussing the benefits of entering into long-term, extensive facility mapping opportunities encompassing the mapping of large sections of underground pipelines and providing the data to the client on GeoUnderground.”
The program allows for the accurate mapping of pipelines and conduits installed via horizontal directional drilling or conventional trenching methods regardless of pipeline depth, type of material or soil conditions. This service addresses the need for accurate 3D mapping of critical pipeline segments that exceeds regulatory requirements and supports integrity and reliability demands. The new requirements of PHMSA regulations under the Pipes Act of 2016 affect the entire 2.4 million miles of buried gas pipelines in the U.S.
In addition to the energy industry, Geospatial Corporation and its cloud-based GeoUnderground software, provide a simple and economical solution to organize and manage both aboveground and belowground infrastructure by the 60,000 municipalities across the US. Geospatial helps municipalities and utility companies more accurately locate and map their underground pipelines, conduits and other underground assets through a portfolio of high-tech data collection devices and highly trained technicians.
About Geospatial Corporation
Geospatial Corporation utilizes integrated technologies to determine the accurate location and position of underground pipelines, conduits and other underground infrastructure data, allowing Geospatial to create accurate 3D digital maps and models of underground infrastructure. The Company manages the infrastructure data on its cloud-based GIS portal called GeoUnderground, a proprietary GIS platform custom designed around the Google Maps API.
