Our staff at United Field Service is trained in up-to-date equipment and methods for surveying. We combined conventional survey equipment with the Trimble GPS system.
Our knowledgeable and professional staff draws from our broad range of resources to give you the most efficient service for your project from conception through construction.
Oil and Gas Development
► Gas Well Staking
• UFS has been staking well locations for the Oil & Gas industry within the Four Corners region for 10 years. Along with a ground survey, we also can provide all of the drafting, permitting and engineering services associated with each project.
► Lease Road Staking and Design
► Pipeline Preliminary & As-Built Surveys
► Gathering Pipeline Projects
• UFS provides pipeline staking, design, construction management and construction inspection
Pipeline Transmission Systems
► Route Surveys
• USF provides all surveying and associated drafting for pipeline routes
Aerial Photo Control
► Large Scale Static Surveys
► GIS Mapping & Geodetic Control Surveys
• UFS control and data collection surveys are executed with the Trimble GPS systems.
► Aerial Panels Control for Drone Flights
UFS has the capability of preparing a wide variety of Oil & Gas Industry maps of the Four Corners Area.
Using state of the art Geographic Information System software (ArcGIS), informational maps can be
customized to a client’s needs. Types of maps that can be produced range from detailed maps of gas
well locations and facilities to larger area maps that can show resource roads, environmental and
culturally sensitive data (when provided) and the pipelines of an entire gathering system.
Some of our services include baseline maps that are readily available and printed USGS quad maps. In
addition to our ability to prepare and produce large format color prints, we also have the resources to
scan or copy large sheets (up to 36” wide).
Aerial and Drone Surveying
United Field Services provides professional Surveying and Engineering services to the oil and gas industry in the Four Corners region. In keeping up with industry advancements, we have acquired the training and certification necessary to perform aerial surveying services.
Using a state-of-the-art Unmanned Aerial System vehicle (UAS) and flown by FAA certified UAS pilots to gather high resolution photographs (20MP), and using the principles of photogrammetry, we are able to produce accurate topography and digital terrain models.
These models can be used for various civil engineering and land surveying processes, including drainage analysis, future design for expansion, and surface subsidence monitoring, or any other use for topography.
The use of flight planning software allows for the collection of photographs in a pattern that can then be stitched together to provide for the extraction of elevation data using photogrammetry. When combined with the use of high precision survey grade GPS to measure ground control points, vertical accuracies of 0.1' can be obtained.
The elevation models combined with the latest in 3D modeling software can then be used to create 3D images and renderings. The use of high-resolution aerial photographs can be used for high definition wall maps that can be used for HES requirements such as ESD locations, muster points, etc.
UAS photography can also provide a safe way to access and inspect hard to reach, and potentially dangerous, areas such as the tops of tanks, or towers.
The ability to collect HD video in a circular or linear flight video also allows for the capture of sight conditions that might not be visible from the ground. Using video editing software, aerial video can be utilized in the production of safety, training, or orientation videos.
