Fortune 500 Energy Supplier Engages OneBridge for CIM Machine Learning Solution Pilot
EDMONTON, AB | OneBridge Solutions Inc. (“OneBridge”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of OneSoft Solutions Inc. (TSX-V:OSS; OTCQB:OSSIF) (the “Company” or “OneSoft”) has teamed up with Worley [ASX:WOR] to engage a major US-based electricity and natural gas supplier (the “Client”) for a trial use of the Company’s Cognitive Integrity Management™ (“CIM”) software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) solution. Over the next several months, the Client will investigate CIM’s advanced Data Science and Machine Learning capabilities for pipeline integrity management of certain infrastructure segments.
Worley Senior Vice President of Global Operations, Integrated Solutions, Mark Ramsden said, “This pilot will be conducted with a progressive, sizeable operator who is currently responsible for supplying natural gas and electricity to over 7.5 million customers across the eastern United States.”
“The Client is an industry leader that is leveraging data science to increase safety and reduce costs,” added Kelly Newnham, Vice President of Onshore Hydrocarbons for Advisian, Worley Group’s global consulting business.
“We are excited to collaborate with the Worley Group on this project, which will involve working closely with the Client’s pipeline integrity team to identify how our software solutions can positively impact and optimize their operational processes,” said OneBridge president, Tim Edward. “We are very pleased that our work to date with Worley and Advisian for this Client has now progressed to the software trial stage, following the preliminary investigative work that has been conducted in the past few months.”
About the Client
The Client supplies energy to customers in the Eastern USA, with a focus on natural gas and electricity. They are a diverse Fortune 500 company whose business includes natural gas storage, transmission, distribution and import/export services.
About the Pilot Program
Pursuant to the Pilot Program process, OneBridge will normalize inline inspection (“ILI”) data for segments of the Client’s pipeline, ingest the data, map certain shape and ILI files, and align anomalies and calculate their growth rates. CIM provides revolutionary Pattern Detection and Interacting Threats functionality using data science and proprietary Machine Learning algorithms, which are designed to detect threats to pipelines over time using Predictive Analytics, as well as advanced business intelligence, graphical presentations, and reporting of the data that operators require to manage their pipeline infrastructure.
The Pilot Program, using a “succeed fast/fail fast” approach, will accommodate a full evaluation of CIM by the Client within weeks, with the objective being to allow the Client to utilize CIM as a key component of its integrity management process on a trial basis while using its own data.
