digital iLLUMINATE: Evolution into the Gas Digital Twin

Virtual | Sep 17, 2020

Does it take you weeks to gather yearly PHMSA data and submissions? Can your GIS provide all this information to you instead? MLGW now as this information at their fingertips at a moment’s notice. SSP Innovations has partnered with MLGW to support a migration of their gas transmission data into UPDM and an implementation of Esri’s ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing tool set. This process included gathering records on pipeline data going back as far as 70 years ago. The team digitized information and migrated data to the standard Esri model for continual maintenance, risk analysis, data gaps and regulatory functions. Upon establishing the best-known representation of the gas environment (the digital twin), SSP and MLGW created a custom path that pulls all the required data together into the summarized PHMSA dashboard based on any delta/edits. In doing so, the entire organization can consume their regulatory snapshot throughout the year, eliminating weeks of data gathering prior to the yearly submission every March. The presentation will overview the entire project as well as our final outputs.
