How to Mitigate Risk and Improve Efficiency Through Asset Integrity

Asset integrity is a critical issue facing both producers and pipeline operators. Pipeline spills gain significant attention in the media and public, and obtaining and maintaining the social license to build and operate infrastructure is becoming an increasingly challenging issue for the industry. One practical issue facing companies is the information management challenges in developing a solid integrity management program.

In this round table session, the group will engage in discussions that outline the challenges in managing such massive amounts of data and where gaps may exist in an AIM program. We’ll help you better understand how data management and linking information and operations is crucial to your company’s operational success. Company’s thrive when all employees can easily access and leverage the same tools and data. Poor data management poses risks that can lead to operational inefficiencies and vulnerabilities should an incident occur. Uncover crucial strategies to minimize risk, understand the foundation behind a solid asset integrity management plan and gain valuable insights to improve efficiency in your operations. Key talking points will be collected and documented into a report on Asset Integrity Management (AIM) which will be shared with the industry.

Be part of the conversation on operational efficiency and gain some insights for your day-to-day operations.

With 660,000 kilometers of pipelines in Western Canada — equivalent to the amount of public roads — pipeline asset integrity management programs generate a massive amount of data. In a dynamic operating environment, it is crucial that all stakeholders involved in managing that asset have consistent and unified information concerning the asset being managed.
