Our land surveying professionals are experienced in all aspects of survey projects, including boundary and title surveys for industrial sites and infrastructure construction, as well as pipeline surveying and well-staking services. If your company needs to plan new wells, we can help find suitable sites and assist with grading, cut and fill requirements, utilities and access roads. If your company needs to build a new pipeline or establish boundaries for new sites or utilities, our team can assist with mapping, establishing right-of-way and planning wells, before and after topographical surveys, lines and easements.

With pipeline surveying, we can assist with numerous challenges associated with surveying, routing and development. Below are a few of the advantages of professional surveying in pipeline development:

  • Routing efficiently: When you build a new pipeline, you need to know it will follow the most efficient route. Despite a surge in renewable energy, oil and natural gas consumption still account for about 69% of United States energy consumption, and pipelines send these critical fuels to the consumers who need them. We use the latest technology, such as GIS mapping, to help you identify terrain changes, canyons and other geographic challenges. Armed with this information, you can construct a sound, efficient pipeline that helps you meet your delivery goals. 
  • Identifying legal obstacles: The proposed pipeline path may run through land that presents challenges to legal ownership. These obstacles become particularly thorny when different people own the surface estate and mineral estate, as they may in Texas. Our experienced survey team has the skills and experience necessary to research ownership through right-of-way contracts, easements, state and federal land statutes and other documents and smooth your path to completion. 
  • Detecting potential environmental hazards: The proposed pipeline may present ecological concerns, particularly if its route cuts through sensitive areas like wetlands. Our surveying team can identify potential environmental risks and help your company avoid or minimize them. 
  • Ensuring safety: At WTC, our land surveying and mapping solutions come with a commitment to the highest safety levels. Because safety is one of our highest priorities, you’ll know you’re engaging in ethical practices by ensuring worker protection.
