DNV GL's Digital Pipeline Ecosystem
Offshore and onshore natural gas and liquid hydrocarbon pipelines pass through remote regions, oceans and wilderness, but also through densely populated areas. Despite increasingly strict regulations and safety investments we see catastrophic incidents that harm the environment and lead to fatalities every year. Many of these accidents could be avoided with systems that improve decision-making.
Pipeline operators are beginning to realize that they’re dealing with a major disconnect, and they are paying hidden costs. A pipeline’s initial design can lock in 90% of the lifetime cost and limit the scope for change in safety management procedures. Lifecycle management, including a vast amount of valuable and sometimes unstructured data, is not brought in to day-to-day operational processes. This leads to a lack of insight when crucial decisions are made. Up to 20% of operational budgets are wasted compensating for poor information management and inconsistencies in information across processes.
A step change in the industry is needed. Our software development is now being structured around our new digital asset ecosystems. The Digital Pipeline Ecosystem seamlessly combines the power of hydraulic modelling, leak detection, integrity management and safety assessment capabilities. Our tradition of engineering excellence and best practice is augmented with the power of advanced data analytics and utilizes the unlimited power and storage of cloud platforms.
VIDEO: DNV GL - Software Pipeline Ecosystem Overview
This short video provides a high level overview of our Digital Pipeline Ecosystem, including Synergi Pipeline, Synergi Gas, Synergi Pipeline Simulator and Synergi Water. The ecosystem not only supports making our pipelines safer, it also supports pipeline operators in making the entire pipeline system more efficient, increasing availability and throughput to meet steadily increasing demand. The Digital Pipeline Ecosystem is the platform for the future of pipeline management.
VIDEO: Synergi Pipeline - Ticket Risk Assessment
Excavations in and around underground utilities can result in damage to gas, electric, communications, water and sewer infrastructure, leading to service disruptions, serious injuries and costly repairs. Excavation safety starts with insight and damage prevention efforts. Synergi Pipeline's Ticket Risk Assessment solution provides an insightful view of the potential impacts around a proposed excavation. Leveraging DNV GL's digital asset ecosystem, Ticket Risk Assessment enables proactive approach for better real-time decisions with predictive and advanced data analytics.
Synergi Pipeline - Pipeline integrity management
The management of pipelines involves complex design and operational systems that can assess risk levels and pipeline performance. We offer a wide range of pipeline management software solutions, including Synergi Pipeline, which is a platform for the integrity management of all types of pipelines in the oil and gas industry, including on and offshore, liquid and gas transmission, gathering and distribution systems.
Synergi Gas - Advanced hydraulic modelling
Synergi Gas network modelling software identifies, predicts and helps you address your asset's operational challenges, enabling day-to-day efficiency of gas distribution and transmission networks. Synergi Gas gives the results you need to make crucial design, planning and operating decisions.
Synergi Water - Water quality analysis and hydraulic modelling
Synergi Water is a simulation software package for water quality analysis used to model and analyse closed conduit networks of pipes, regulators, valves, pumps, reservoirs, tanks, wells and boreholes.
