Fully Equipped and Experienced Locators in Grande Prairie

If you are looking for experienced locators, we are the right choice for you.

With our selection of the latest equipment in the market and qualified technicians, we are completely equipped to work in all kinds of locations, terrain and weather.

Our Locating Tools

We utilize current facility maps, records and accumulated drawings collected over our previous projects to ensure all registered lines are accounted for during our locates. Over these years, we have maintained an in-house database of locates for our technicians to access. We also provide our clients with a digital field locate map and additional line data that is available. You can also count on us to customize your request with ground disturbance packages, drawing protocols, and UAV imagery.

Application of Line Locating

The applications of line locating are endless and very important in modern day underground mapping. Some of the important applications are:

  • Field solving: Line locating helps us to decipher the intricate network of underground infrastructure and document it electronically for future use.
  • Pipeline signage installation: We work closely with our clients to manage their pipeline signage and integrity to meet with the regulatory requirements laid down by Alberta Energy Regulator (AER).

  • Third party incident investigations: If you want to make sure that all possible preventable measures have been recognized by your locating service providers, we can offer our services as an outside source to perform a site assessment and report our findings.
