What is Surveying?

Surveying is a discipline through which experienced professionals detail the physical features, boundaries, and other aspects of a piece of property to help with projects like construction, improvements, and more. Surveys are an essential aspect of real estate, construction, and public works, such as energy management and production.

What is an Energy Survey?

Within the energy sector, there is a need for different types of surveys throughout various stages of projects within the wind, solar, and oil and gas fields. Surveys often help with everything from getting the right permit, to knowing where a well's location will be, to ensuring a safe project for all involved.

Surveys for oil and gas projects are different depending on whether the client works in the upstream, midstream, or downstream sector. For upstream clients that focus on exploration and production, survey services are often used for staking, assisting in permits for plats, and for mineral lease and units. For midstream clients that work on pipeline or transport and storage, surveys are used for landowner exhibits, alignment sheets, and to help create an outline for preliminary pipeline routes. Downstream clients that focus on refining and distribution often use surveys for construction layouts and preliminary sites. In addition, as-built surveys are helpful for downstream projects.

For any energy project, construction staking or layout services can be helpful in determining a project's size and scope. Regardless of which aspect of energy your business operates in, surveys are an essential and beneficial part of any project. They provide much-needed details about the land you're working with, help ensure your project is meeting local regulatory standards, and enable your business to operate with the highest level of accuracy.
