Pipeline & Facilities Data Set

The Excalibur-Gemini Group Ltd . is pleased to announce the addition of a new Pipeline & Facilities data set that is second to none. A new agreement with Ensight Information Services Ltd. allows Excalibur-Gemini to use their PipesWest data for both hard copy maps and digital data. The Ensight Pipeline File Advantage : Ensight has exclusive contracts with over 20 surveyor and line locator offices in Saskatchewan who provide them with their historical pipeline/flowline surveyed ROW plans, as well as all current new pipeline survey activity to populate this data set. Both Saskatchewan Energy & Mines and SaskGeomatics contribute to the dataset in addition to using them for internal operations. Saskatchewan is unique in that they differentiate between 'pipelines ' and 'flowlines'. Legislation requires 'pipelines', meaning lines that are downstream from the first processing facility, to be surveyed and registered. The upstream lines 'flowlines' which account for approx. 70% of all pipelines require neither registration at Land Titles nor Licensing at Energy and Mines. Flowlines are therefore difficult to research and are missing from datasets supplied to industry by other data vendors.
