The contractor’s schedule will determine that timeline. By leveraging our experience, we guide our customer’s projects from “field to finish” and to the completion of the As-Built survey by collecting critical information at the right time, from the right people.
Our mission is to turn around all as-built pipeline projects 30 days after demobilizing our survey crews or the commissioning of the pipeline for operations, whichever comes first. We understand the value of the data we collect and prioritize handing off a complete data package to the pipeline operator in a timely fashion.
The flow of documents—specifically material testing reports (MTRs), which often hold up the timeline—affect our ability to do our due diligence and validate our data. It is the number one contributor to delayed completion. Gathering this information during construction is critical to the timeline.
Keep in mind that there is often a misunderstanding of “project completion” between the construction/inspection representatives in the field who are trying to close their job-books, and the folks back in the corporate offices that have rigorous standards and check-list to be completed before submitting a project to their internal Operations team and Regulatory Authorities.
