From the Ruby Pipeline running from Wyoming through Utah to the UNEV Pipeline that originates in the state, there are many above and underground oil/gas pipelines that require constant monitoring and inspection. These lines run thousands of miles and the number is likely to grow exponentially in 2018 (predicted amounts are over 4.6 thousand miles). With the help of FairLifts, you and your company can see a greater number of lines inspected and patrolled regularly, decreasing the risk of recurring unidentified leaks or other anomalies.
Pipeline surveys in Utah are not only needed to mitigate potential risks, product loss and profit decreases but also are often required by the Department of Transportation to ensure the line is safe and correctly managed. Aerial pipeline surveys conducted by trained helicopter operators are the most cost effective, safe and efficient means in inspection of multiple lines.
Often, pipelines run in areas not easily accessible by ground crews and run for miles making it a tedious and costly job to dispatch a ground crew to. Helicopters can take trained inspectors over multiple lines in one day, to remote areas and provide more accurate readings using laser detection, optical remote sensing technology, LiDAR and GIS data acquisition. By conducting regular helicopter pipeline surveys you will be provided with GPS encoded images, detailed ROW observation reports and timely accurate results needed to move projects along, meet federal regulations and repair what may be needed to move forward.
We are familiar with the region and our relationships with local operators give us the ability to offer pipeline survey operations anywhere in Utah as well as the country.
