Natural Gas Utilities
WestLAND Group’s legacy is rooted in the utility sector, and specifically in the natural gas industry. Initially providing services to the nation’s largest gas distribution company – SoCalGas, WLG has expanded throughout the Southwest, leveraging its expertise and technical capabilities to serve many of the region’s natural gas and electric utility companies.
Natural Gas Pipelines
Mobile Home Park Utility Conversion Program | SoCalGas and Southern California Edison | Southern California Service Area
WestLAND Group has been a valued partner in California’s Mobile Home Park Utility Conversion Program since it began in 2014. The CPUC-approved program incentivizes mobile home parks and manufactured housing communities to replace or update their energy distribution systems to maximize safety and efficiency. To date, the program has facilitated needed improvements in the Southern California counties of San Diego, Los Angeles and San Bernardino.
Natural Gas Facilities
High Pressure Gas Meter | SoCalGas | Vernon, CA
WestLAND Group leveraged its pipeline engineering expertise to design a gas meter assembly and facility and that exceeded customer requirements to handle high loads and pressures. In addition to the facility design, our team evaluated and surveyed the installation site to ensure proper preparation for grading, concrete foundations and construction.
Natural Gas Storage
La Goleta Gas Storage Facility | SoCalGas | Goleta, CA
SoCalGas hired WestLAND Group to accurately locate and map various operational components at all of their underground storage facilities. These extensive land and aerial surveys and detailed final reports contain GPS location data plotted on digital maps to improve operational efficiency, safety and regulatory compliance.
Energy and Power
WestLAND Group has performed extensive work with power companies in Southern California, helping to identify property boundaries, establishing Rights-of-Way, mapping substations and surveying powerline transmission corridors.
EV Charging Stations
Charge Ready Program | Southern California Edison | Fontana, CA
WestLAND Group provided surveying and engineering services for SCE’s Charge Ready Program in Fontana, CA. The project included installation of 6 public vehicle charging stations to better serve EV commuters and encourage the transition to electric vehicles. WLG conducted a 3D laser scan of the project area for use in ADA compliance and verification.
Electric Overhead Facilities
Pardee No. 2 220KV | Southern California Edison | Moorpark, CA
Southern California’s electrical grid supplies power over highly varied, often difficult terrain. SCE tasked WestLAND Group with surveying the towers of a 220 KV transmission line that crosses through steep mountains in northern LA County. Using traditional and aerial surveying techniques, WLG’s teams validated existing survey monuments and installed additional control points to build a more complete picture of the region’s complex electrical infrastructure.
