Maverick Is the Locator of Choice for Alberta Industry
PIPELINE RIGHT OF WAY LOCATES
Ground disturbances for new pipelines and in the vicinity of existing pipelines pose a great number of hazards. It is necessary to diligently and cost effectively map out subsurface facilities. This requires a ready selection of technology, experience, and the ability to access a wide range of terrains.
Maverick provides all of this as well as the insurance, safety prequalifications, and mapping and modeling capabilities. From scanning during pipeline route planning, to pipeline right of way utility locates, to explosion-proof pipeline camera inspections, Maverick has pipeline professionals covered.
ENVIRONMENTAL BOREHOLE SWEEPS
Prior to drilling environmental boreholes for sampling, monitoring wells, or remediation, secondary utility locates are required. This locating application requires a professional locator capable of blind sweeps, deploying multiple technologies including GPR, and diligently marking, mapping, and communicating results.
Maverick is a preferred utility locating vendor for environmental engineering, geophysical and remediation companies in Alberta.
SECONDARY UTILITY LOCATES FOR CONSTRUCTION
Secondary or private utility locates take more than the ability to clip onto a tracer wire and trace it out. It is absolutely essential that private locators can perform diligent blind sweeps and understand what technology or methods are required.
Maverick combines inspection disciplines from traditional EM locating to ground-penetrating radar (GPR), pipe camera inspection, infrared thermography for in-floor heating, concrete scanning, and even resistivity or acoustics if necessary. We have the qualifications and training to work in all industries across Alberta and Western Canada.
ABANDONED WELL LOCATING
Maverick locates abandoned oil and gas wells, underground storage tanks, and provides subsurface feature mapping and locating. Each scenario is unique due to the objects underground, the soil conditions, contamination, terrain, and other factors. Maverick has the experience and tools to tackle all of these challenges. You can learn more by reading Maverick’s comparative study of abandoned well locating technology.

Contact us and we will discuss your locating project with you. We can help you find the right fit for your job scope, timeline, and budget. From pipeline right of way locates to environmental borehole sweeps, we have the experience, technology, and qualifications you require.
Because subsurface utility locating employs remote sensing technology and is subject to interpretation and interference, we work closely with our clients to ensure that they understand what methods and equipment are available. Every utility locating technology or method has benefits and limitations. Our experience allows us to identify site-specific considerations and choose the correct approach to get the job done. As with all of Maverick’s services, the focus of utility locates is Safety, Diligence and Innovation.
