Gas Distribution

SAM supports the safety and compliance of gas distribution systems across the U.S. with industry-leading surveying, mapping, and geospatial services. By applying a complete range of technology solutions to capture accurate data in even the most difficult-to-access locations, we help private and municipal clients ensure the integrity of new and legacy gas distribution and transmission assets.

With SAM’s technology and experienced experts at your disposal, your gas distribution field and data needs are fully met. With SAM you will gain better data, a more reliable foundation for reporting and planning, and the satisfaction of knowing what is below the ground.

Infrastructure integrity experience

SAM’s nationwide team of licensed engineers, surveyors, experienced project managers, and field staff have proven experience helping gas distribution clients achieve better damage rates. Our field teams collect the level of detailed data required to back Local Distribution Companies (LDC) in mapping inventory and planning asset and facility maintenance. While our local offices support local work, our national footprint means that we can smoothly manage multi-state projects to speed along your data collection objectives.

Our experts are involved nationally and with locally based 811 damage prevention, utility coordination, and utility commission committees, keeping SAM ahead of all new and existing requirements related to safe gas distribution operations and energy delivery.

Our technology is a game-changer

SAM applies state-of-the-art surveying, mapping and geophysical sensing equipment to support accurate location and mapping of all utility assets, and in assessing the condition of that infrastructure. Whether your facility is above ground or below, SAM can locate it, map it, and deliver data in easily useable formats for every client. We can deploy a combination of solutions, including pipe and cable locators, ground penetrating radar, time domain electromagnetic detectors, acoustic pipe locators, and non-destructive hydro and air vacuum excavation equipment, to develop the most complete picture of your utility infrastructure. Add to this our GIS-formatted mapping solutions, real-time reporting capabilities, and consistent communication, and you will see why SAM’s gas distribution clients grow to expect a more intelligent picture of their assets.
