Incorporated in Edmonton on April 30th, 2008, Explore was founded as a professional land surveying firm specializing within the oil and gas sector. Our scope of practice grew in 2009, when at the request of our clients we began to offer depth of cover inspection services on pipeline water crossings. Since this time, we have expanded our services, becoming a multidisciplinary firm within both the surveying and asset integrity industries.
Our land surveying division has been steadily increasing thanks to a few key long-standing acquisitions where we have enjoyed building on the relationships that these firms have started. With the recent opening of our Drayton Valley office, Explore is making great strides in establishing ourselves as a top service provider of Real Property Reports, road and subdivision surveys, and descriptive plans in rural Alberta.
Despite market instability, Explore has seen tremendous growth within our pipeline integrity services; where we once operated solely out of Edmonton, Explore now has highly trained integrity specialists in Calgary, Drayton Valley, Red Deer, Whitecourt, Kerrobert and Peace River. Our services have also benefited from this growth, as we now offer pipeline integrity engineering, risk assessment management, regulatory compliance support, and asset integrity services, in addition to our established depth of cover and right of way inspection programs.
Now, in our 10th year, Explore has expanded into Saskatchewan, adding professionals in both the integrity and survey fields in our Kerrobert office. As we grow throughout Western Canada, we are excited for the opportunity to collaborate with new and existing clients; improving our existing procedures and introducing new technology to address the ever-changing market and the needs of our clientele.
