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.
