Building & Maintaining Pipelines

The toughest pipeline projects are no match for creativity, dogged determination, and collaboration across locations and practice areas through the entire project life cycle. That is exactly what you get when you partner with T. Baker Smith. Here, there’s no one-size-fits all approach. That’s the way it’s been since we started in 1913.

Overcoming Obstacles

Solutions Tailored to Your Project

Whether you’re laying new pipe or ensuring the integrity of one that’s already built, we understand the obstacles you’ll face during a pipeline’s lifetime. We’ve helped our partners lay and maintain countless miles of pipeline, from the western plains to the eastern seaboard to the deep blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. And we’ve done it by tailoring each solution to both the business landscape and the physical one — all with the utmost concern for safety.

We let our customers speak for us

“ As a Landman, I have worked on projects with T Baker Smith for many years. I continue to utilize their services because they are professional, trustworthy and assist me, the client, in finding the most efficient resolution for varying types of challenges whether it’s surveying or permitting. ”

Carol M. Sledge, CPL
“ What keeps me coming back to T. Baker Smith is the dedication that Kenny and his team exhibits every day; it is one of the most valuable things to me. I cannot recall one time TBS did not follow through on getting what we asked for. You get what you pay for, and with TBS, we do not have to sit and babysit or redo the work. ”
Craig Guidry

“ We have worked previously with other consultants and find that TBS’ reliability and capability are superior to their competition. They are always available to assist us at Rebecca, Magnolia, Coulon, Acadia, St. Bridget and Evergreen Plantations as well as the Bayou Lafourche Freshwater Reintroduction project, by providing surveying and modeling support. ”
