PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The client’s program consisted of a proposed well pad site, three freshwater impoundments, one flowback
pit, two compressor sites and three laterals to traverse across the county to tie into a measuring and
receiving station.
SURVEY:
The initial route selection for the pipeline was based upon the shortest distance possible. When
beginning, Thrasher ‘s team developed a list of considerations in the route design. Those
considerations included:
• Potential terrain obstacles including streams and road crossings
• Existing land use
• Potential surface owner conflicts
• The client’s mineral/lease holdings
• The client’s existing pipeline and compression facilities
RESEARCH AND DATA COLLECTION:
Following the initial route selection,Thrasher’s staff performed research and data collection. Research
was conducted at the County Courthouse; aerial photography was used for base mapping. Data
collection,including mapping of delineated streams and wetlands for state and federal permitting
purposes was also conducted.
PRELIMINARY FIELD REVIEW
Prior to commencing a construction layout survey,
Thrasher performed an on-ground preliminary route
review; in doing so Thrasher was able to eliminate
problem areas and perform any necessary pipeline
re-routes prior to the start of construction. This
method allowed for an environmental site review
allowing for field identification of potential wetlands,
streams and potential erosion and sediment control
issues. These findings were communicated to both
the client’s management and the pipeline contractor .
FIELD ROUTE SURVEY
Utilizing standard pipeline layout techniques,
Thrasher performed the construction layout “boots
on the ground” survey, ensuring a clearly marked
route. Stationing was placed at all even stations
and angle breaks . GPS terrain elevations were also
collected at this time.
