Indirect Assessment

Simply put there are so many pipelines in the ground around us that line strikes are inevitable. The results of these incidents  can either be catastrophic in nature, relatively minor or anywhere in between.  We all know that digging can be an expensive and time consuming process so it makes sense to triage the damage and pin point the areas of concern. 


Alta-West has a complete compliment of cutting edge tools used to assess pipelines for external coating damage and to quantify the results. Some of these techniques includes

  • Current Attenuation
  • ACVG 
  • DCVG
  • Close interval surveys
  • Depth of cover surveys & GPS locates

By implementing the correct tools Alta-West can identify areas of concern, quantify the damage and give you peace of mind knowing exactly where to dig.
