Surveying & Mapping with Drones: How to Fuse UAV Data with Geospatial Data to Improve Onshore New Well Site Development, Pipeline & Utility Routes

Location: Champions 1 & 2

Onshore New Well Development requires a complex logistic workflow to ensure best site development with limited impact to the environment and reduced cost.

This workshop will go through the workflow of selection of the best location to establish a pad, road, well, wellbore, facilities, pipeline, pond, and utilities by fusing UAV data to geospatial data.  We will discuss how UAV’s can greatly increase the site development decision-making processes.

Attendees will learn:

  • Current UAV regulations and process to obtain FAA 107 License
  • Different types of UAV equipment (rotary, fixed wing, camera, LiDAR, Radar, Coms, GNSS, INS, etc.)
  • Different types of UAV software (Mission Planning, Data Collection, Data Processing, Modeling, Designing, Data Management, Online Processing, Desktop, Server Services, Mobile Apps, etc.)
  • How to utilize Geospatial Data Cubes to predesign site before going to field and best methods to collect UAV data for Site Development
  • The use of Real-time Design Tools (Reading CAD files into a web-enable GIS Web Map/Feature Service feed, where everyone can see Sites being surveyed and designed in real-time)
  • How to design pad / road / ponds using UAV data
  • How to design utilities, facilities, pipelines, drainage, and support infrastructure with UAV data
  • How to calculate Earth Volumes
  • How to monitor the construction / drilling process and as-built new or existing facilities
  • How to organize Onshore New Well Development Survey and Survey UAV Data for rapid decision making in bringing Energy to the public efficiently and profitably
