August 23, 2016  - By 0 Comments

Geospatial Corporporation announces the long-awaited passage of the PIPES Act of 2016. The bill, recently signed into law by President Obama, empowers the Pipeline Hazardous Material Safety Administration (PHMSA) to require various certifications, data management, testing and mapping of all types of the more than 3 million miles of buried energy pipelines across the USA.

“The PIPES ACT impacts all segments of the industry, including gathering systems, transmission and distributions systems,” said Mark Smith, Chairman and CEO of Geospatial Corporation. “The Oil and Gas markets are a major part of our current and future business, and recently we have clients giving serious attention to accuracy and completeness of their asset mapping in anticipation of the new regulations. ”

As a Google Maps Technology Partner, Geospatial Corporation is positioned to provide management capabilities, technology, software and data management processes to owners of critical underground infrastructure located across the United States in compliance with the new legislation.
