Pipeline Route Study Analysis
Selecting a pipeline route is a very important phase in any new pipeline installation project. GTS understands the route selection process requires a comprehensive review and evaluation of environmental, social, political, safety, logistical, and geographical criteria of the various route alternatives. GTS has developed an algorithm within our Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to facilitate evaluation and ranking of route alternatives given the variables determined to be most important to our client such as cost, environmental impact, terrain, etc.
Each new pipeline project presents its own distinct challenges and GTS has the experience to recognize that a “one size fits all” approach does not work well for the unique needs of our clients. We work with our client to ensure the route selected minimizes environmental and social impacts while providing the safest, most economical, and best fit for the Operator’s needs.
