Surveying 101; Managing Contractors and Survey Data
March 20, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join Bruce Carter for a presentation on surveying and experiences he has experienced throughout his career on March 20th, 2018 at 11am Central Time.
The presentation will identify the key elements necessary for successfully managing field data acquisition exercises and insuring the quality/integrity of the data acquired is delivered and maintained. The importance of proper guidelines, standards, scope of work, QA/QC, data management/manipulation, and deliverable formats will be discussed. A few “horror” stories will be mixed in to emphasize the potential outcome when these elements are not properly considered.
Bruce started surveying in 1969 while in college and obtained my first of eight State Board of Registrations as a Land Surveyor in 1975. He worked in private practice 15 years before joining Amoco, which later became BP, and retired from there after another 25 years. He has been a Geodetic Consultant since 2009. His career has consisted of surveying activities relative to private/industrial developments. He has conducted both underground and surface positioning in the zinc and coal mining industries, as well as seismic, well positioning, unitization and pipeline related surveys on both land and offshore, and subsea installation positioning in the oil and gas industry. He has also served in professional organizations at the local, national, and international levels and his project activities have given him the opportunity to work both onshore and offshore in various parts of North and South America, and Russia. He is currently the Midstream SME for Ener-Data, a company that specializes in the extraction of information from legacy paper data through artificial intelligence and delivers digital files for loading into DMS, GIS, and risk management/analysis applications. He is also a Director for In-Line Pigging Solutions, US. More importantly today, He is a founding member of the Pipeline Leadership Council and leads the Survey Division of that organization, and he’s here to introduce a forum for mentorship to the YPP whose membership represents the next generation of industry specialist and leaders.
