Pipeline Route Selection

Pipeline route selection options

PhotoSat produces high accuracy survey data from satellite photos which are ideal for pipeline route selection. Many route options can be analyzed using detailed route elevation profiles without field visits or any in-country presence. Even without ground survey data, the relative accuracy of our 1m survey grids is 20cm in elevation over a 10km distance. This is sufficient for the best route selection.

Satellite surveys for pipeline routes:

  • Reliable, engineering quality survey without on-site presence
  • Reduce the exposure to risk of surveyors and field crews in hazardous or remote areas
  • PhotoSat survey data can be used in all phases of oil and gas projects

PhotoSat’s elevation data

PhotoSat’s unique processing system produces the most accurate elevation data from satellite photos with accuracies better than 20cm in elevation. We have delivered over 900 projects globally.

Our digital satellite surveying package includes an engineering quality 1m elevation grid accurate to 20cm in elevation, 50cm or 1m contours, and a 50cm satellite orthophoto.

Proof of accuracy

The accuracy of our surveys has been proven using tens of thousands of ground survey points for comparison. View our Proof of Accuracy Reports.
