PipelineOffice® Integrity Liquids HCA

A comprehensive solution for liquids pipeline operators, providing analysis for High Consequence Areas (HCA), including supports for various release scenarios and Emergency Flow Restriction Device (EFRD) placements, complete with robust reporting and documentation.

Complete Liquids High Consequence Area (HCA) Solution

PipelineOffice® Liquids HCA provides a complete High Consequence Area (HCA) solution for liquids pipelines and facilities, with full support for direct (intersection), indirect/aerial dispersion (buffer intersection), and potential (terrestrial and hydrologic plumes) analysis. Worst-case product release volumes are calculated within the software, or volumes from external models may be incorporated. PipelineOffice® Liquids HCA also supports Emergency Flow Restriction Device (EFRD) analysis, allowing users to specify the goals of the analysis and have the algorithm to search optimal placement of 1 or more new valves for a selected pipeline system. Powerful reporting tools support validation of the both the HCA and EFRD result, through interactive charts and review of the results organized by modeled spill points and HCA segments. Results are presented by method and type of impact, and relationships to specific HCA features are maintained and documented.

Integrity Liquids HCA Key Features

HCA Analysis
  • Supports direct (intersection), indirect (buffer intersection), and potential (terrestrial and hydrologic plumes) analysis
  • Optionally incorporates results from external air dispersion model for additional variable-buffer indirect analysis
  • Calculates drain-up, considering shut-down time, and supports augmented or externally calculated volumes
Configurable by Client
  • Filters organized by project
  • Select any combination of direct, indirect, aerial dispersion, or potential analysis
  • Configurable to support analysis methods varied by product type
  • Algorithm is configurable based on operator interpretation of PHMSA rules
  • Supports operator-provided HCA data in addition to standard government-supplied HCA data
  • Configurable inputs and settings to allow clients to use the best available data and to explore different scenarios
Widget Companion
  • Deployed with Portal for ArcGIS
  • Provides interactive volume calculations and charting
  • Define EFRD scenarios based on conversion of existing valves or placement of new valves
  • Compare before and after volumes for each EFRD scenario, including interactive charting
  • Powerful, integrated “Report Manager”
  • Interactive drain-up charts, filter or navigate by release point or station ranges, validate sections of pipeline that contribute to volume
