The end of the year is starting to creep up on us (where did all the time go!), and we wanted to share what we have coming up for fall.
At New Century Software and Integrity Plus, we take pride in knowing that our teams are comprised of the most experienced and knowledgeable people in the industry. We strive to build our teams with people that understand the nuances of the pipeline industry, and have studied and grown their skillsets over time. This led us to think, how do our customers and others in the industry know they are getting the best solution and service from a qualified team? To help answer this question, we developed a three-part series, How to Spot an Expert. We’ll touch on DOT compliance consultants, risk and integrity management analysts, and GIS experts.
In the first of our three-part series, we’ll be focusing on the realm of regulatory compliance. To ensure safety and reliability, pipeline operators must show due diligence in developing, implementing and documenting pipeline safety programs that meet Federal and State regulations. From our perspective, there are three critical elements that every consultant should provide to help operators achieve their regulatory goals (and if your consultant isn’t doing these … you might want to start asking some questions).
Entering, storing, and maintaining pipeline data is a never-ending process with new regulations, technology, and procedures always popping up. Implementing a new database, data model, or software application can take time and resources that your company may not be able to spare.
Break out the cake and candles because New Century Software turned 22!
Looking back at all the changes the pipeline industry and the world has gone through in the last 22 years, we've learned that, now more than ever, there is a need for expert integrity consulting, data management know-how, and GIS-powered systems. New Century's software development and Integrity Plus' integrity services provide the pipeline industry with the integrity management analysis, GIS systems, and data solutions it needs to continue to enable safe and reliable energy transportation. As a whole company, we are invested in learning, building and advancing with our customers as the industry continues to morph with the changes of the world year after year.
Next week, we’re hosting our first-ever Client Conference Backyard Series in Denver, CO. We’re taking the client event experience we’ve become known for and breaking it up into three separate one-day pipeline GIS-fests in Denver, Houston and Oklahoma City.
Why? Because in 2016, we want to do everything in our power to better serve our customers. So, instead of having you come to us … we’re coming to you!
The oil and gas industry this year has certainly had its ups and downs with people and companies moving, combining, coming and going. Every year brings a new set of challenges, and our goal this year is to meet them head-on to help lighten the burden on our customers. We plan to do this through re-imaging how to manage ILI data, building support for spatial data models, and integrating with ESRI ArcGIS Online.
To ensure data quality and accuracy, operators are editing and maintaining their data around the clock. Often, when changes are made in a database, it can be difficult to visualize when and where the edits occur on the pipeline.
