Geospatial Corporation, a Google Cloud Partner – Technology Track Announces Success Introducing Underground Pipeline Mapping, Management and Software to the Energy Industry
PITTSBURGH, December 1, 2016 - Geospatial Corporation (OTCQB symbol: “GSPH”) announced today that the Company has successfully completed more than 50 pipeline mapping projects under its recently introduced Quality Assurance (“QA”) Locational Integrity Management (“ILIM”) program for major oil & gas companies across the Southeastern US. Todd Porter, President of Geospatial’s Energy group based in Houston, Texas stated, “Every energy company managing pipelines realizes the critical need to maintain accurate and complete information on these pipelines including location and depth. 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 (“HDD”) 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 exceed 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 USA.
In addition to the energy industry, Geospatial Corporation and its cloud-based GeoUnderground software, provides a simple, secure and economical solution to organize and manage both above ground 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.
