Project Description: CVL Consultants provides design and field surveying for oil & gas pipelines. Design services include design of bored crossings of major rivers, streams, and irrigation ditches, route selection, plan and profile design for pipelines in congested urban corridors and railroad rights of ways, permitting and processing, and re-location design for existing pipelines. Surveying services in this sector have included route topography surveys, aerial mapping of pipeline corridors, right of way research and mapping, and ALTA surveys of existing facilities.
In Commerce City, Colo., CVL designed a 3.5-mile, 6”-diameter gas pipeline from a refinery to an existing tank farm. The route was through an urban area that was extremely congested with other utility lines. Design included horizontal, directional drilling of a crossing under a major drainageway at the Sand Creek & Interstate-76 highway bridge.
Other work has included design and permit processing for a pipeline crossing of a major irrigation ditch in Adams County, Colorado, and the relocation of an existing gas pipeline in Thornton, Colorado. To address the proposed extension of a retail center and arterial roadways, CVL coordinated as-built surveys, design of the relocation, and permit processing.
