Jemena Adopts CIM for Integrity Management of its Gas Transmission Pipelines
Edmonton, Canada; Melbourne, Australia; and Brisbane, Australia (October 12, 2022) – OneSoft Solutions Inc. (TSX-V:OSS; OTCQB:OSSIF) (“OneSoft”) and its OneBridge operating subsidiaries (“OneBridge”) and Worley Group, through its Advisian Asset Advisory division (“Advisian”), are pleased to announce that Jemena (“Jemena”) has entered an agreement to use Cognitive Integrity ManagementTM (“CIM”) in its pipeline integrity management processes.
Peter Harcus, Jemena General Manager, Gas Assets and Operations said: “Managing the integrity and safety of our extensive gas pipeline network is Jemena’s priority, and we have recently used CIM to optimise the integrity management of our assets. Instead of our engineers having to manually analyse data from inspections of our pipelines, this cloud computing platform helps automate the process, providing us with data that gives us a much fuller picture of the actual condition and threats to the ongoing safety of our pipelines. This means we can make better long-term decisions about our infrastructure and target our activities and expenditure to optimise programs and reduce costs by proactively managing any emerging issues. Working with the team on this pilot project has led us to enter the agreement with CIM and Advisian for future pipeline management projects and they will help us achieve our objective of maintaining technological leadership in the industry.”
Hossein Khalilpasha, Principal Engineer and Asset Advisory Team Lead for Advisian said, “We have enjoyed working with the Jemena team on CIM projects during the past 18 months, which efforts have generated new learnings and processes that Jemena and Advisian continue to share with industry peers at various industry events in Australia. We are glad to be collaborating to improve integrity management processes through more comprehensive analyses of the under-used data that the pipeline industry has access to.”
“In true leadership form, Jemena was the first Australian company to work with Advisian to enhance pipeline asset management and has now become the first Australian pipeline operator to augment legacy integrity management processes with CIM’s new technology that leverages machine learning, data science and cloud computing,” stated Tim Edward, OneBridge Canada President. “We are optimistic that growth of CIM use will continue as Advisian efforts world-wide create more awareness of our solutions amongst pipeline operators.”
Pursuant to the working arrangement, Jemena has entered into a multi-year CIM-use agreement with OneBridge and Advisian will provide CIM expertise for Jemena on a consulting basis.
