For many industries it is vital to know what is below the surface before ground breaking activities take place. It’s very dangerous to just assume an area is clear of obstacles and commence drilling or excavation activities. Subsurface infrastructure damage is a huge liability issue for many of our clients. EMC utilizes a multi-tool approach to locating and delineating subsurface pipelines and utilities. We do not rely on a single geophysical tool...
Subsurface voiding can be costly and dangerous. EMC has conducted hundreds of void detection surveys for a wide variety of clients. Whether you are conducting heavy lift crane operations in a petrochemical facility or have a suspected line break beneath a slab on grade, EMC can provide you with quality information to help you make safe and cost efficient decisions. Our extensive experience with 3D modeling sets us apart from the competition.
EMC has vast experience in locating Underground Storage Tanks (UST’s) under many different surfaces. From steel reinforced concrete to asphalt or grass or gravel. Once again we deploy a host of tools that can compliment and cross-confirm each other to enhance the confidence level. Sometimes proving that a tank has been removed is just as important as proving that it is in situ. By using the different tools and with our proprietary data processing...
For a variety of contaminant plume situations, EMC has the equipment and the knowledge to get the job done. Being headquartered in the Houston, Texas area EMC has been called on many times to locate and map chloride plumes from oil and gas producing areas. We have also been instrumental in debunking claims of contamination through our comprehensive approach to site characterization.
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is a very safe and cost effective method to locate and mark rebar, post-tension cables, conduits and other elements located within concrete slabs prior to renovation work. GPR is safe to use in close proximity to people. 3D imaging of structural steel can be produced quickly and images are easily included into reports for later reference. In addition GPR is the only imaging technique for situations involving a slab on grade.
Pinpointing the location of Plugged and Abandoned Oil Wells can save much time and money. EMC has worked closely with many real estate developers, environmental companies and oil and gas producers to locate lost wellheads. Unfortunately historical coordinates are often wrong and can be wrong by a significant margin. EMC can quickly and efficiently locate these lost wellheads saving you much time, money and guesswork.
EMC has over 20 years of seismic acquisition and processing experience. We utilize the most advanced techniques for determining velocities and site characteristics. We’ve been involved in many engineering studies and can collect the necessary information for determining Poisson’s ratio. EMC also has experience with MASW seismic acquisition which can provide valuable information through surface seismic acquisition.
Does your project have the potential to cause concern for the local community? Many construction, seismic and mining projects can generate vibrations that may not be harmful but can still be the genesis of legal action in our overly litigious society. Let EMC protect your interests by monitoring and recording the vibrations produced during your project.
