PinnacleART and Metegrity Work to Improve Natural Gas Facility's Mechanical Integrity Program
"PinnacleART's expertise in MI implementations and programs, combined with Metegrity's Visions® software, will help our client make a major step change to their MI program," said Nathanael Ince, VP, Client Solutions at PinnacleART. "PinnacleART has previously worked with Metegrity on corporate MI and RBI implementations, and we are confident that this joint effort will deliver a mature MI program, resulting in a much more compliant, profitable, and low risk facility."
In February of 2018, PinnacleART performed a multi-day assessment of the client's MI program and delivered an assessment report outlining program gaps. Within this report, PinnacleART identified the steps the facility needed to take to achieve MI compliance and mature their current practices and systems. One of the recommendations included getting an Inspection Data Management System (IDMS) in place, and PinnacleART provided recommendations for several IDMS software options. The client selected Metegrity's Visions® IDMS based on the software's user-friendly interface, ease of navigation, and focus on MI compliance. Additionally, the client found that Metegrity's Visions® software was the ideal fit for tracking asset mechanical and inspection data; flagging and managing asset nonconformance;
"The client was looking for a cost effective, yet robust system to help them transition into a more proactive maintenance, operational, and asset integrity model. They needed a configurable system to meet asset performance goals and exceed regulatory reporting requirements,"
PinnacleART is currently working on the pilot MI implementation for one of the client's gas processing facilities. PinnacleART will implement the Visions® database and deliver an implemented MI program by June 2019. PinnacleART will then scale to support the rest of the client's fleet of assets over a two-year period.
