NiSource Gas Transmission and Storage: GIS and Direct Assessment
Track: Pipeline and Gas Utilities
Authors: Carl Meinke, Amy Jo McKean
Due to aging infrastructures, operators face increased regulation regarding pipeline integrity management. They must identify potential threats at an increased frequency and with additional considerations. NiSource used existing GIS data for; analysis, field verification and overall data recovery as well as storage of the resulting DA data.
GIS was a helpful tool throughout the DA program. Results and early finds due to the GIS system saved time and funding.
