Professional Surveyors - who know your territory
Accurate and timely surveys are vital to your business. Midwests numerous branch and field offices facilitate quick response times and help minimize your transportation charges. Our mission is to provide accurate, professional services and high quality customer service while maintaining strict standards for safety.
Midwest Surveys provides professional land surveying services for a wide range of industries. Our particular expertise lies in oil and gas related land surveys and we are a member in good standing of APEGGA (Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists, and Geophysicists of Alberta).
Midwests oil and gas experience not only provides our crews with the understanding of how to work safely and effectively in sensitive regions, it has also allowed Midwest to compile an extensive library of proprietary plans from areas throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan.
Line Location Services
The extensive drilling and construction activity throughout western Canada have made accurate line location increasingly vital. With greater drilling density and the reworking of old areas, the risk of an accidental line strike grows. Midwest can provide accurate, timely line marking in order to significantly reduce these risks. Our experience working in sensitive areas enhances our ability to precisely identify and mark buried lines. Midwest personnel also have the safety training, equipment, and expertise to safely work in and around active drilling and construction zones.
Midwests large number of field crews and office locations facilitate access to target locations across Western Canada. Of course, proper research is a key component to line location and marking. Our extensive proprietary database of survey plans from throughout the region, combined with our access to third-party records, enables Midwest to provide comprehensive searches for existing facilities before our crews enter the area. Once onsite, our highly experienced crews locate existing lines using historical information in conjunction with advanced line detection equipment.
While we realize that safety and reducing potential liability from a line strike are your key concerns, however, if Midwest already has crews working in the area of your line locate, you could realize a reduction in transportation expenses.

MicroSurvey Coordinate Geometry software for two and three-dimensional coordinate computation and calculation and various software packages for the computation of least-squares adjustments.
EMXS and QuickSurf software packages providing state-of-the-art digital terrain modelling, earthwork design, volume computations, and contouring capabilities.
Pipeline Construction & Intergity
Midwest Surveys Pipeline Construction & Integrity Surveys (PCIS) Group has the services you need to better manage existing and proposed pipelines and associated facilities. Our PCIS specialists aid Oil & Gas operators by providing innovative inventory management and information mapping as part of a fully comprehensive survey package. Using the latest survey technologies and information tools, Midwest will help ensure your project is accurately managed from inception to final tie-in. PCIS services include technology management in pipeline and facility engineering and construction, mapping, system improvements, and corrosion survey projects.
Midwests locations throughout Alberta and Saskatchewan facilitate timely and cost-effective solutions to all your survey needs. The PCIS Group combines Midwests extensive experience in Oil & Gas geomatics and mapping with industry experts specially trained in pipeline integrity. Field crews receive NULCA-recognized line locator training to help them provide unsurpassed buried facility locating and our project managers have strong backgrounds in a variety of pipeline and facility programs.
Midwest conducts surveys of pipeline engineering, construction, depth of cover, stress corrosion and cracking (SCC), plus corrosion surveys and staking, data management, and mapping. Midwest can pinpoint problem areas and, by combining this information with pigging results, streamline repair projects and establish a better framework for managing existing pipeline and facilities. Active integrity management has become increasingly vital as buried facilities begin to age
