  • Audit Trail Memory
  • Solar Powered
  • Alarm Call-Out Capable
slide8

Why Incorporate Pipeline Integrity?

  • Increasing Our Pipeline Integrity
    • Move toward our goal of implementing a pipeline integrity management program within our GIS
    • Add pipeline information to each pipe segment
      • Installation
      • Repair history
      • Leak survey data
    • Make Information accessible to all employees at workstations
slide9

Improvements in Pipeline Integrity

      • Add the ArcGIS Server extension
      • Publishes GIS to the entire company
      • Cost $4500
      • Total Cost $10,000
slide11

ESRI ArcEditor

  • ORUD currently uses a legacy CAD program to create and maintain distribution system mapping
  • The data is exported as ESRI shape files and then imported into the ArcView software
slide12

ESRI ArcEditor

  • The upgrade to ArcEditor will allow editing and management of ORUD’s distribution system mapping to move from the legacy CAD software to the ESRI GIS environment
slide13

ESRI ArcGIS Server

  • The addition of ESRI ArcGIS Server will allow ORUD system maps to be viewed throughout the company network allowing improved customer service and emergency response
slide14

ESRI ArcGIS Server

  • This version of the ArcGIS server software will become a foundation for additional functionality upgrades such as image management, network analysis, and mobile applications as the GIS system matures
slide15

Why Increase Pipeline Safety Education?

  • Increasing Community Awareness:
    • To fulfill guidelines for API  RP-1162 
  • API RP-1162 Regulatory Requirements
  • Federal pipeline safety regulations require pipeline operators to conduct continuing public awareness programs to provide pipeline safety information to four stakeholder audiences:
  • Affected Public, Emergency Officials, Local Public, Officials and Excavators
slide16

Why Increase Pipeline Safety Education?

  • Increasing Community Awareness (Continued):
    • To increase awareness to a larger
