Oil Well Locating - Carpinteria, Southern California
Ground Penetrating Radar Scan performed in Carpinteria, Southern California. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. - GPRS - of California was contacted by a Civil Engineering firm to locate 2 abandoned oil wells. The utilities were dated to have been in place since the 1920’s and there were no records of the removal of these wells. Topography showed the approximate locations of the wells; these areas were wide open areas near the ocean with no apparent above ground obstructions which made it easy for us to scan. We scanned 50’x50’ areas around the supposed locations and we were able to locate both of the oil wells. We had no trouble locating the metal in the wells even though they were thought to be at least 10’ deep. The client was then able to excavate within a small area and uncover the abandoned wells.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems of Southern California was contacted by an environmental consulting firm in order to scan for utilities prior to removing old monitoring wells. These wells were installed over a decade ago in order to measure the water levels in the ground, over the years they were gradually replaced meaning that the old ones needed to be removed. The scope of work took place throughout fifteen locations in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara County. We were asked to clear 10’x10’ areas per location for any existing utilities; all findings were marked on the surface with paint, flags and when an approximate depth was provided. In some areas the roads were re-paved causing the well covers to be buried under the new asphalt; using the Magnetometer in these areas allowed us to locate the existing well covers successfully.
