Pipeline Design Engineering

For proposed pipeline construction projects, Surface Search Inc. offers shallow geophysical surveying and data analysis services to provide subsurface information on:

  • River crossings – Conventional and Horizontal Directional Drill (HDD)
  • Pump/Compressor station foundation design
  • Buoyancy control design
  • Bedrock surveys
  • Utility/pipeline crossing locating mapping (metal, concrete and plastic pipes), SUE

Targeted Features


• Upper bedrock surface profiling/mapping
• Rock rippability parameters
• Soils characterization and mapping (clay, silt, sand, gravel, cobbles)
• Soil/rock profile geometry and mapping
• Soil/rock stiffness/hardness parameters
• Soil/rock resistivity/cathodic protection parameters
• Fault detection and mapping
• Muskeg (Organic Soils) profiling and mapping
