Pipeline Surveying

Establishing the exact location of pipelines and other potentially hazardous infrastructure is important, but it’s only one piece of the puzzle. Beyond gathering critical data about factors that may affect pipeline operations, Merrick can identify terrain features and environmental restrictions to help mitigate project obstacles and ensure operational efficiency. Merrick understands that project safety and operational efficiency are equally important, so we focus on developing creative asset information solutions that minimize risk.


Merrick provides a fresh perspective on how advanced survey equipment, new geospatial technologies, and innovative project approaches can be effectively utilized to reduce the overall level of effort, increase accuracy, and integrate surveying / geospatial data into your organization's operations. Merrick pipeline survey offering includes:

  • Pipeline integrity management & risk assessment
