The client’s program consisted of a proposed well pad site, three freshwater impoundments, one flowback pit, two compressor sites and three laterals to tie into a measuring and receiving station.
The initial route selection for the pipeline was based upon the shortest distance possible. When beginning, our team developed a list of considerations in the route design. Those considerations included:
• Potential terrain obstacles including streams and road crossings
• Existing land use
• Potential surface owner conflicts
• The client’s mineral/lease holdings
• The client’s existing pipeline and compression facilities
