ESS has demonstrated exceptional skill and professionalism in assisting us with some very challenging engagements. I feel confident that when ESS is representing us, we have the smartest people in the room on our team.
Natural Gas Transmission & Storage
ESS offers full-service environmental consulting and engineering services for natural gas transmission and storage systems. We have provided environmental consulting for natural gas facilities including high pressure main pipelines, distribution pipelines, compressor stations, and underground storage facilities. ESS specializes in siting, permitting, and environmental inspection services for linear system installations in coastal and offshore environments. Our project experience includes installations requiring dredging, cofferdams, and directional drilling. ESS prepares EIR/EIS/Resource Reports for Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) certification and other local, state, and federal reviews and approvals, and works with clients to achieve environmental compliance with FERC Certifications post construction including wetlands and habitat restoration.
Natural Gas Pipeline Routing Evaluations
ESS conducts desktop routing studies for pipeline projects using geographic information systems (GIS) databases. We use existing data to conduct desktop evaluations of alternative pipeline rights-of-way (ROW) routes, lay down areas, transportation resources, and ROW access points. The geo-referenced GIS data is used to map resource areas along proposed rights-of-ways and to develop EIR/EIS/FERC Resource Reports.
