Gathering System Layout

 

As drilling sites (well pads) produce oil & gas, those products need to be transported to larger pipelines, local storage or offload facilities so they can get to market. The most cost effective manner to move the product is for the operating company or hired midstream company to develop smaller diameter gathering lines which interconnect the well pads to larger storage facilities or major pipelines. These gathering system networks are extensive in major shale plays and need the same type of preliminary design layout information from civil survey contractors in order to show the construction contractor how and where the lines should be installed.
