Comprehensive Tracking and Survey Services
Above Ground Marker (AGM) Survey Services
FIS survey technicians have been OQ-certified, trained and tested in the use of the latest GPS mapping software and electronic survey equipment. Based on specific ILI tool specifications, FIS survey technicians mark these locations with AGMs consisting of steel pins and survey lathes. Per FIS procedures, each individual AGM is documented and listed on electronic data sheet. Each data sheet contains detailed AGM location, GPS coordinates, and driving directions from the last sequential AGM when necessary. These AGM coordinates are documented and presented in electronic mapping format for future use. The precise location of the AGM location is typically used by the pipeline operator to establish precise footage distances for dig sites repairs along the pipeline route. For more detailed information, request a copy of FIS AGM survey standard operating procedures.
Tracking Services of In-Line Inspection tools
FIS tracking technicians have been OQ-certified, trained and tested in the use of the latest GPS mapping software and electronic tracking equipment. Our Technicians are proficient with computerized mapping data generation systems, and understand the standard requirements of the major intelligent tool manufacturers. Upon the launch of any type pipeline tool, FIS tracking crews will track the tool from launcher to receiver, around the clock until it reaches its destination. FIS understands the criticality of knowing the EXACT location of any type inspection tool while traversing through the pipeline.

Survey Staking Services – New Construction
Before new construction begins, technicians survey features along proposed pipeline segments. Existing utility/pipelines, agricultural drainages, etc. are located and marked to prevent accidental damage during pipeline construction. Next, the pipeline’s centerline and the exterior right of way boundaries are staked. FIS also has the ability to GPS welds, above ground appurtenances, etc. during and post in-service.
