Natural Gas Pipelines & Storage Facilities

Gas Pipeline InstallationESS offers full-service environmental consulting services for natural gas transmission and storage projects and has provided environmental consulting for natural gas facilities including high pressure pipelines, distribution pipelines, compressor stations, and underground storage facilities. We specialize in siting, permitting, and environmental inspection services for linear projects. ESS prepares environmental impact documents, FERC Resource Reports and permit applications for federal, state, and federal reviews and approvals. We work closely with clients to achieve environmental compliance with FERC Certifications, construction commitments, and mitigation requirements.

Natural Gas Pipeline Routing Evaluations

ESS conducts desktop routing studies for pipeline projects using GIS resource information and databases. We use existing data sources and aerial photography to conduct desktop evaluations of alternative pipeline routes, compressor station and metering sites, staging areas and access roads. The data compiled during the routing evaluations is supplemented with detailed field surveys and site investigations to compile comprehensive impact assessments and FERC Resource Reports.
