The Land surveying sector is undergoing some drastic changes in terms of technology. In the past, land surveying was often a time-consuming, costly process. New technologies have arisen that make the process faster and easier, especially in important, high volume industries such as the oil and gas industry.
Technology is one of the things that distinguishes Landpoint from other surveyors. Landpoint realizes that oil and gas companies increasingly need more accurate data, faster turnaround times, and more cost-effective solutions, and has tailored its offering to address these challenges. Here are just a few of the reasons why Landpoint can be considered the best choice for land surveys for oil and gas projects.
Get the Accurate Data Your Project Needs
Your data is a key component to your project’s success. Accurate surveying data will head off problems further down the line, making it easier to gauge potential risk factors and plan ahead. Traditional methods of surveying, while effective, can take time and require a lot of resources. Aerial surveys done by plane may be taken from such a high elevation that they may miss features on the ground. Ground surveying is time-consuming, costly, and may not be able to map large areas accurately.
Landpoint’s high resolution manned aircraft camera systems and surveying drones can fly low without any safety concerns, as they are unmanned aerial vehicles. UAVs can acquire data down to 1 centimeter in resolution while sidestepping many of the major safety concerns and cost issues related to both plane-based aerial and ground surveying. This makes them ideal for pipeline surveying.
Streamline Your Surveying Process
A delay in surveying can be incredibly costly to an oil and gas project. Until surveying is completed, multiple facets of the project cannot be planned or permitted. Unexpected developments on the survey could lead to additional complications, which must be resolved before the project is able to move forward.
Landpoint’s end-to-end data collection, analysis, and processing can reduce this time, ensuring that your project begins and ends on schedule. Through Landpoint, data can be turned around in as little as a few hours. A streamlined surveying process means fewer opportunities for error and fewer potential roadblocks. You won’t find yourself waiting for third-party processes to be completed with Landpoint.
Cut Costs through Better Surveying Technology
For an oil and gas company, saving on overhead and increasing profit margins are high priority actions. By reducing overhead, oil and gas companies will be able to better weather potential volatility within the market.
By using the latest LiDAR technology and combining it with cloud solutions, Landpoint has developed an extremely fast way to acquire, process, and distribute survey data to oil and gas companies. This allows it to cut costs without reducing accuracy, allowing oil and gas companies can focus their budget on other areas of their processes and project. This is in conjunction with the savings offered by utilizing safer surveying methods overall.
How Much Does a Land Survey Cost?
As one might imagine, the cost of a land survey can vary immensely given the size and scope of the project. To that end, there is often no single answer about how much a land survey costs. However, it is possible to make some estimates about the “typical” cost of a land survey.
- A small residential job, such as surveying a 10-acre lot for an individual looking to create a farm, will likely run between $500 and $2,000.
- Corporate land surveys range in price as well. Surveying the site of a single office building could cost about $50,000. A developer looking to build a subdivision from scratch and needing a more extensive land survey might pay $500,000 for a comprehensive land survey.
- Large land surveys, such as those for energy projects like solar farms, wind turbine installations, or oil and gas pipelines are the most complicated and large-scale projects for a survey company. These will be multi-million dollar jobs; however, the return on investment makes this expense quite necessary.
There’s no one answer to the question “how much does a land survey cost,” as it depends upon the project. If you want to know more about the price of a prospective survey you might want to have done, contact an experienced survey company like Landpoint today. They’ll be able to give you a more accurate estimate.
