Pipeline Patrol

Overview

Companies that own and operate pipelines are required by the US Federal Government to maintain and confirm a clear Right of Way (ROW) area around their pipelines, and making sure anything that could pose a danger to the pipeline is addressed.

The Problem:

The current process includes:

  • The pilot using a GPS device, taking photos by phone or tablet
  • Rewritten logs
  • Manually compiling data
  • Manually sending tickets for each conflict to notify the team that will address the issues

This manual process is inefficient for the pilot and does not allow their force to respond immediately.

GISinc’s Solution: Pipeline Flight Patrol App

Built on the Esri platform, GISinc’s Pipeline Patrol App enables pilots to:

  • Use their own tablet or mobile device in the cockpit to record notes, capture GPS data, and take photos
  • Submit conflict/obstruction information from the air, which is immediately sent to their company’s Work Order Management System
  • Creates a new ticket and assigns the appropriate ground operations
  • Gives the crew directions to the conflict, and easy report process when work is complete
