3D Modeling & BIM Using Laser Scanning

If you caught our last blog post here on storage tank inspections using laser scanning technology, you may have wondered about some of our other services. One of the most common uses of laser scanning is for purposes of as-built documentation of a site, then a creation of a 3D Model. The models can be “agnostic” [...]

  • Why utility mapping is critical to risk reduction and recordkeeping

Why utility mapping is critical to recordkeeping and risk reduction

The importance of utility mapping cannot be overstated in the fields of geophysics, environmental engineering and infrastructure planning. Asset operators on sites that contain subsurface pipelines and other ancillary tubes, ducts or channels must contend with the potential for damage to these assets at any given time. For a number of reasons, [...]

  • Why pipeline monitoring is imperative in high consequence areas

Why pipeline monitoring is imperative in high-consequence areas

Thinking back to 2016, many observant TV viewers likely recall the uptick in extreme weather events. And the facts check out: The number of floods reached a record high, and Live Science stamped 2016 as "The Year of the Earthquake." This is not to say rising water levels and high-magnitude quakes were the only [...]

The future of pipeline leak detection

The detection of pipeline leaks is a critical function to maintaining optimal operational performance and regulatory compliance. In today's energy-intensive environment, the use of pipelines is a matter of safely and reliably transporting the world's most vital resources. Pipelines have proven to be the safest mode to transport oil and gas in part due to [...]

Non-destructive leak testing can improve pipeline sustainability

A leaking pipeline can cause an inordinate amount of legal, safety and environmental risks, which is why oil and gas companies delegate a large percentage of their time and resources toward detecting and preventing leaks. While operators look to put more miles of pipelines into production, some face regulatory hurdles in certain regions, which forces [...]
