Major Pipeline Projects

Midwest Surveys’ Major Pipeline Project (MPP) group has surveyed over 2000 kms of NEB regulated pipelines within the last 5 years. This group provides effective and efficient solutions for all stages of the lifecycle of a pipeline offering products and services in the following three areas: pre-construction, construction and data management.  Our goal is to leverage our knowledge and technology to facilitate successful planning and completion of our clients’ pipeline projects.
