For Columbia Pipeline Group (CPG) to be the industry leader in customer service and to meet the demands of our extremely competitive industry, we must operate safely and efficiently with a high degree of reliability. CPG serves some of the nation’s highest-value energy markets via our natural gas transmission and storage facilities. The interstate pipeline extends 15,000 miles and spans 16 states with approximately 1.1 million horsepower of compression housed in over 100 stations. At Columbia Pipeline Group, the OSIsoft Enterprise Agreement allows for utilization of leading technology to make Big Data decisions. We are analyzing real time data to prevent facility events through application of OSIsoft, Microsoft, and Transpara tools with an estimated failure avoidance savings of approximately $2 million to date. Analysis and monitoring of data allowed CPG to recently weather some of the coldest delivery days in 30 years. On January 6 and 7, CPG’s throughput ranked in the top five all-time highest peak days since 1981. While Northeast demand was hitting record levels during the polar vortex, Columbia Pipeline Group’s assets performed reliably without natural gas delivery interruptions. One customer voiced appreciation, “I just wanted to thank everyone at CPG for helping us serve our customers reliably and safely through some of the most severe conditions we’re experienced in years, maybe decades”. Recent events prove that possessing the capability to detect potential failures early provides tremendous value to not only CPG, but also our customers and the environment.
