GE Oil & Gas Unveils New PVi Integrity Management System to Help Operators Manage Pipelines

Posted on December 30, 2008

GE Oil & Gas’ PII Pipeline Solutions is introducing Integrity Management System (IMS), GE's first-of-its-kind pipeline integrity management software system to help pipeline operators more effectively manage the integrity of their pipelines.

GE is launching IMS as part of PipeView Integrity, its rapidly expanding portfolio of integrated pipeline integrity management and engineering solutions and services to help the oil and gas industry comply with increasingly stringent integrity reporting and maintenance regulations.

By using IMS, operators can manage all aspects of their pipeline integrity process, from setting integrity goals to assessing pipeline conditions and risks to planning and tracking mitigation, assessment and maintenance activities. Encompassing both data analysis and practical integrity management, IMS includes modules that can assess a pipeline’s condition, determine risks, and evaluate, create and manage integrity plans. This includes determining appropriate mitigation activities and assigning mitigation and maintenance activities to the appropriate personnel, complete with notification and approval mechanisms.

The system also offers the required functionality to support the operator during internal and regulatory audits, including the ability to link procedural instructions and document the completion of activities.
