 Identify subsurface infrastructure for planning of pipeline crossings

Challenge ID:

HCP-5103

Originator:

Onshore: Hatfield

Title:

Identify subsurface infrastructure for planning of pipeline crossings.

Theme:

ON 5.1: Logistics planning and operations - Baseline mapping of terrain and infrastructure

Consortium Lead:

Arup

Interviewed Company:

Arup

Geography:

ON.REG.00 - Generic onshore

Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

Identify constraints to either be avoided or allow for an appropriate design mitigation strategy to be developed.

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Identification of hazards (buried structures, obstructions, existing buried utilities and pipelines, etc.) and risk prior to construction of crossings supports the development of appropriate mitigation strategies.

Thematic information requirements:

Distribution and status of infrastructure

Land use

Sub-surface features

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Undertaking searches with utility companies and local authorities.  Carry out desktop study research including review of historic archive data (topo maps, air photographs, satellite imagery), site walkover surveys.

What kind of solutions do you envisage could address this challenge?

Integrate high resolution optical / thermal and geophysical methods including GPR.

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need?

Are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

Already feasible, but time consuming and records may be incomplete. Use airborne geophysics (EM methods).
