Did you know that there are over 314,000 pipeline water crossings in Western Canada? Do you know how many of them impact your pipelines? We can tell you.
With the spring melt finally on (hopefully!) it’s time to bring pipeline water crossing management to the forefront of your overall integrity management program.
Backed by Explore Integrity and GDM Pipelines, gX Insight offers the industry’s only complete crossing management solution. While other tools may help by identifying potentially risky high-water events, this is just one part of the complete gX Insight crossing solution!
We start by creating a full program for you. This includes identifying your complete crossing inventory, ranking and prioritizing each crossing and then implementing a strategy to inspect, validate and manage these crossings that aligns with your corporate priorities and budget.
Once the plan is in place, we fully execute the in-field activities and make recommendations for future work or adjustments based on:
- High stream flow events – We constantly monitor stream flow activity across Western Canada and proactively alert you when there are high-water events which could impact your pipeline inventory. We then work with you to put a mitigation strategy in place.
- Inspection results – Explore Integrity’s team of experts identifies when a crossing does not meet the minimum depth of cover standards and makes recommendations for additional work to ensure the crossings are properly managed and in line with regulatory requirements.
- Changes to pipeline inventory – Updates to pipeline operating conditions are identified using GDM’s industry-leading pipeline information…the only source of data for all of Western Canada that is updated on a daily basis.
The complete program is managed using our online application, Converge, so you are easily able to access the most up-to-date information related to your crossing program at any time.
