Geospatial Holdings Smart Probe/DuctRunner Technology Utilized on Dubai's Palm Islands.

Reduct NV and Al Naboodah Specialist Services Utilize Smart Probe Technology for Unique Pipeline Installation via Horizontal Directional Drilling

PITTSBURGH -- Geospatial Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB OTCBB

See OTC Bulletin Board (OTCBB).
: GSPH GSPH Graduate School of Public Health (University of Pittsburgh; Pennsylvania, USA) ) today announced that its Smart Probe/DuctRunner Pipeline Mapping Technology was utilized to enable a unique installation via horizontal directional drilling (HDD (Hard Disk Drive) See hard disk and HDD caddy.

) of several pipeline segments on Dubai's Palm Islands. The project was completed by Al Naboodah Specialist, LLC (Logical Link Control) See "LANs" under data link protocol.

LLC - Logical Link Control
 a part of the local Al Naboodah Group of Companies and supervised by Reduct NV, licensor of the DuctRunner technology.

The project included the installation of over 32,800 feet of 20-inch diameter HDPE HDPE
high-density polyethylene
 pipeline. To install this pipeline under the ocean floor the design called for 17-degree entry and exit angles and 1,310 foot radius entry and exist curves. At the deepest point the bore would be 89 feet below the surface.

To enable the exact placement of these pipelines the first task was to sink a 6 inch steel pipe on the seabed and determine its exact x, y & z co-ordinates. To accomplish this, a Smart Probe/DuctRunner was run through the pipeline to create a 3-D map of the centerline cen·ter·line  
1. A line that bisects something into equal parts.

2. A painted line running along the center of a road or highway that divides it into two sections for traffic moving in opposite directions, or, in the case of
 of the pipe. With the exact centerline of the pipe in hand, a wire was run through the pipeline and returned back along the ocean floor to the point of beginning. This wire was then energized, and the signal tracked by a Paratrack horizontal directional drilling guidance unit to accurately guide the drilling of the pilot bores for the pipeline installation.
