Most pipeline operators have yet to develop a Mega Rule strategy, however with our experience and history in pipeline records digitizing, compliance can be achieved easier than ever before.
With the Mega Rule in place, energy companies must decide how to handle the strenuous amount of reporting requirements for their pipelines. Validating each mileage of pipeline in your organization is not an easy task, and with 50% of the requirements to be completed by 2028, energy companies must act fast. Thankfully, COMPU-DATA has you covered. We provide an all-encompassing Mega Rule solution through our offerings ranging from document scanning services, automation, artificial intelligence, and cloud-based storage.
We have worked with pipeline operators and owners by digitizing MAOP and integrity records as well as delivering a powerful search and retrieval tool to locate previously untraceable records. As a result, we have helped them save millions in retesting.
COMPU-DATA provides a document management solution that digitizes all vital pipeline records. Digitizing your operation’s documents can mean the difference between a costly excavation and re-verification project requiring multiple pipelines to be retested, or simply providing PHMSA requested documents. Digitizing records can help capture gaps in a pipe’s documentation.
Our solution is broken down into three main components: capture, management & automation.
Our team of professionals travel to our client’s location to package and deliver your documents to our secure scanning facility. Once delivered, documents are scanned using high-speed production scanners, ensuring a consistent output of digitized pipeline records. Documents are then automatically indexed, which allows for users to later search for any document in their organization.
Once your documents have been digitized and indexed by our team, they are automatically uploaded into our cloud-based document management system; Virtual FileRoom™. Our solution makes it easier for operators to track and audit pipelines that don’t meet specific reporting requirements. Paired with the ability to search for any single document and its content, VFR™ provides a powerful solution to efficiently store, search, and retrieve pipeline records, ensuring operators always have access to all records.
Automation & AI
Uncovering compliance gaps out of millions of pressure test and integrity records cannot be achieved manually. Therefore, using pattern recognition software we provide a system that searches for any missing pressure test, integrity and material record that has been scanned, and alerts users once a document matches their compliance requirements. From here, operators can efficiently verify that the document fulfills a pipeline’s reporting requirement, effectively covering compliance gaps according to the Mega Rule.
