Acklam personnel have extensive experience in determining preliminary routing for design and construction of both gathering systems and oil & gas product transport pipelines. Utilizing available satellite and aerial imagery, and by taking into account constructability, environmental, socio-economic issues, right of way negotiations and land owner requests, we work with the project stakeholders to determine the best fit corridor that optimizes construction budgets. The data collection and researching existing record information allows for a more accurate, flexible and defendable design that can be imported into a GIS or AutoCAD system for desk top reroutes or deviations. Acklam is capable of preparing drawings or exhibits needed for display purposes.
Preliminary Route Surveys:
Acklam is proficient in collecting and managing the data associated with the route planning process, engineering design requirements, land and easement acquisition essentials and permitting necessities in support of linear projects. Acklam utilizes conventional ground based surveys or LiDAR imagery to collect geographically referenced data that can be imported directly into AutoCAD or GIS systems. Generation of alignment sheets and construction drawings as an end product of the preliminary route survey efforts. This information is also available to be used for permit and crossing drawings. Acklam understands the need for efficient process and procedures in order to systematically survey, engineer, permit, acquire, construct and maintain linear infrastructure such as pipelines, gathering systems and utilities.
