OneBridge Releases its new Internal Corrosion Management SaaS Solution for the General Market
EDMONTON, AB / June 29, 2022 / OneSoft Solutions Inc. (TSXV:OSS)(OTCQB:OSSIF)(“OneSoft” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that OneSoft’s subsidiary, OneBridge Solutions Canada Inc. (“OneBridge”) has released to market its Corrosion Management System (“CMS”) for commercial sales.
Internal corrosion (“IC”) occurs due to interaction of corrosive materials inside of oil and gas (“O&G”) pipelines which are contaminants naturally contained within oil and gas, such as hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, other chemicals, or even water. A common and effective method used by O&G pipeline operators to mitigate IC involves the injection of corrosion chemical additives, which for some pipeline systems can potentially result in annual costs ranging between a few hundred to more than a thousand dollars per mile.
Under development for the past 8 months, the CMS software-as-a-service module employs a data analytics approach using the Company’s Cognitive Integrity ManagementTM (“CIM”) technology which operates on the Microsoft’s Cloud platform and enables oil and gas pipeline operators to analyze, track and enhance monitoring data and chemical treatment programs to mitigate IC threats. Three of OneBridge’s customers who use CIM to conduct their pipeline integrity management process participated in the CMS private preview, providing valuable user input, feedback and assurances that operator requirements regarding IC management are addressed. CMS is designed to operate either as a stand-alone module independent of CIM or in conjunction with CIM, which enables integration of monitoring and chemical treatment data with other data sets such as inline inspection (“ILI”) and other operational data. More data, leveraged with the use of data science and machine learning, results in more advanced data analytics, which drive operational efficiencies and cost savings.
Megan Scudder, PE and Product Manager for CMS commented, “Our new Corrosion Management System enables integrity engineers and specialists to determine the root cause analysis of internal corrosion by automatically identifying pipeline systems with active corrosion growth and ineffective mitigation strategies. In my own experience as a corrosion engineer, I spent a lot of time formatting, uploading and monitoring chemical data. CMS greatly simplifies this process and integrates ILI data for a comprehensive overview of the internal corrosion threat for each pipeline, thus driving efficiencies and optimizing preventative measures.”
Brandon Taylor, OneSoft President stated “We are most appreciative of our customers who participated in our private preview and helped us validate our models. With their guidance, this initial release of CMS incorporates more data in CIM, enables advanced analytics and delivers more intelligent insights for IC mitigation. This commercial release of CMS ultimately provides a solution to monitor, measure and improve overall effectiveness of internal corrosion programs and serves as the foundation for subsequent versions that will expand alignment of flow rate and other datasets and accommodate other enhancements that our customers want.”
OneBridge will host a webinar on July 13, 2022 to demonstrate its new CMS solution.
