Managed Geospatial Services™ for the Energy Transition Era

During the energy transition period that is occurring, energy providers are shifting away from legacy fossil fuel dependency toward more sustainable alternatives. Natural gas storage, transmission, and distribution fit squarely into the transition equation. Natural gas is the cleanest-burning hydrocarbon. It is abundant and versatile, and traditional energy providers are partnering with renewable energy sources to meet long-term sustainability goals. SAM’s Managed Geospatial Services™ enables energy providers to reduce operation costs and maintain regulatory compliance while building toward a greener future throughout the infrastructure lifecycle.

Natural gas storage, transmission, and distribution infrastructure must still be supported for regulatory compliance, public safety, and emission control. In response to changing demands, many energy providers are faced with the challenge of gathering the geospatial data necessary to update and future-proof energy storage systems, maintain transmission and distribution systems, and reinvent damage prevention programs to reduce the risks to subsurface infrastructure.

Energy Transition Experts
As part of our strategy, when we pivoted the business to a renewable energy focus over a decade ago, SAM continued to support blue chip clients on select energy transition programs. Existing storage facilities and new and existing infrastructure often required modification to accommodate a shift to natural gas alternatives. Renewable natural gas is one such alternative. It’s an efficient and sustainable lower-carbon fuel made from organic source materials and greatly reduces CO2 emissions. SAM supports energy transition strategies through a holistic Managed Geospatial Services™ offering, helping clients maximize existing infrastructure investments while gaining efficiencies in reducing operating costs over their lifecycle. As electric power generation shifts to renewable energy, natural gas, and renewable natural gas are flexible partners to wind and solar, which provide reliable reserves when weather conditions constrain renewable energy sources.


SAM’s licensed professionals, certified safety and risk managers, data scientists, and financial analysts bring exceptional experience and expertise to sustainable energy programs.
