E-PIPE Pipeline Integrity Management
GIS-Based Pipeline and Piping Network Management System
Being able to organize all pipeline network data around the location of assets is a cornerstone of E-PIPE integrity management.
Enercom PIMS is one of the most advanced Pipeline Integrity Management System in the market which creates an optimum balance among cost, safety and reliability for pipeline management.
The system is a collection of pipeline management components to ensure integrity and adequate performance of pipelines. This solution will assist pipeline operators in designing Pipeline Integrity Management systems, which comply with the latest regulations and standards, such as “ASME B31.8S”, “DOT 49 CFR 192", and “EN 16348:2013”.
E-PIPE is a GIS and location based system that maintains the detailed drawings, route maps, aerial photos, and satellite images in time stamped mode. Its 360 degree Google style view of the pipeline and stations is a powerful tool in managing the pipeline network.
The system calculates the relative risk factors and creates risk profiles for the whole pipeline and its segments. Through this process it is easy to identify the high risk points caused by insufficient coverage, under- or overprotection and active corrosion in order to be repaired or mitigated.
E-PIPE system has the capability of inventory management, facility management, rehabilitation, asset management, procurement management, cost analysis, crisis management, rupture analysis, repair management, warnings and alerting, leak detection, dynamic segmentation, workflow management, change management, pipeline assessment ( DA, ILI, Pressure test), pipeline threats identification, destructive and non-destructive testing, high consequence area (HCA) identification, fitness-for-service, FFS assessment, customizable report generation, dispatching and SCADA connectivity, cathodic protection system, risk based Inspection, and much more.
GIS (Geographic Information System) is the core component in E-PIPE creating the ability to organize all of the data in the pipeline network around the location of assets. It organizes by the location the information from a wide variety of operational systems such as inspection, maintenance, risk management, impact analysis, supply management, job design, asset management, cathodic protection, network analysis, facility management, work management, scheduling and dispatching. Being able to organize and locate your asset information is a cornerstone of E-PIPE integrity management.
