 Identify existing linear routes for co-location of pipelines in wilderness areas

Challenge ID:

HCP-5305

Originator:

Onshore: Hatfield

Title:

Identify existing linear routes for co-location of pipelines in wilderness areas.

Theme:

ON 5.3: Logistics planning and operations - Facility siting, pipeline routing and roads development

Consortium Lead:

Hatfield

Interviewed Company:

Hatfield

Geography:

ON.REG.00 - Generic onshore

Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

Need maps of existing linear infrastructure routes and corridors that may be abandoned or belong to other operators within or proximal to current or future operating areas.

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Reduced costs and increased access are possible if existing linear corridors can be repurposed or shared rather than clearing new routes.

Thematic information requirements:

Land use

Distribution and status of infrastructure

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Analysis of high-resolution imagery and LiDAR in combination with existing data or report/licensing information.

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

High-resolution multispectral images to determine vegetation disturbance.

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

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

Need EO with sufficient spatial resolution to determine corridors. Changes in canopy elevations can identify existing linear corridors.
