Kinder Morgan: Integra

With Integra – its new pipeline integrity management software – Kinder Morgan can now quickly analyze its natural gas assets using visualized data. Developed by LaPraim, this GIS helps reduce risk and ensure compliance for an industry with strict maintenance requirements.

Visualizing Data

With a need to visually monitor and analyze natural gas assets, LaPraim turned Kinder Morgan’s extensive database of stored spatial locations and geographic coordinates of pipeline locations into a visual framework – a custom geohub.

LaPraim digitized pipeline centerlines, consequence areas, special permits, and project locations, allowing Kinder Morgan to make an impactful spatial analysis. Physical assets within the GIS are available in several map options (road, aerial, or dark) with geographic overlays, measuring tools to determine distance, and circular buffers to pinpoint proximity.

LaPraim programmers created extensive, layer style control and sorting options specified for pipeline integrity management within the oil and gas industry. GIS was developed using Python, SQL, C++, Visual Basic, and JavaScript.

Asset Management

Kinder Morgan’s new GIS is a cost-efficient way to map and track the spatial location of high-value assets. Patterns in data by region or specific geology can be visualized to forecast changing conditions, track maintenance needs, and support geo-based business decisions.

To ensure projects are within compliance, Integra features custom fields for regulatory segment types, operators, line names, line designators, and risk aggregates. This data helps identify threats and to reduce the risk of failed evaluations.

“In addition to segmenting and cross-referencing this data visually using real-time interactive maps, LaPraim built an option to automate redundant GIS reports.”

With views often needed for policy changes, Kinder Morgan can quickly interpret relationship patterns and situational trends for high volumes of geographic information, including quantities, radius, distance from one point to another, progression, or custom information.

Operations Support

With an ongoing business need to analyze critical asset management, support land surveyors, and business analysts, Kinder Morgan’s Integra Geographic Information System (GIS) also allows for greater efficiency in record-keeping of centralizing geocoded data.

To support the operations team, specialized fields, including project budgets, associated projects, and downloadable documents, were added to Kinder Morgan’s Integra. All of which can filter as a custom value or condition that cross-references with a selected geographic location.
