MapSearch updates 10% of 1m pipeline database for North America

Published:  14 October, 2013

Nearly 100,000 miles of crude oil, natural gas, refined products and other commodity pipelines updated.

The update represents approximately 10% of MapSearch’s 1 million mile pipeline database. The additions and updates range from proposed and new construction to spatial adjustments of existing pipelines. Additionally, merger, acquisition, and divestiture activity combined with new project activity resulted in thousands of other updates over the past year.

Much of the effort has been spent on accurately reflecting new midstream and pipeline infrastructure development in several of the popular unconventional resource plays, including the Eagle Ford Shale, Bakken Shale and Marcellus and Utica Shale formations.

"The recent popularity of unconventional oil and gas production methods has dramatically increased demand for midstream infrastructure that can efficiently and reliably move product from the well to processing, refining, or storage, to the end user," Edward Metz, MapSearch general manager said. "With our recent updates, our customers can be confident that they have the most accurate and complete locational intelligence available on the market."

The recent mapping updates also included spatial and attribute changes to thousands of connected facilities, including: rail terminals, gas processing plants, refineries, distribution and receiving terminals, pump and compressor stations, and more.
