Gas Leak Monitoring Solution

Gas Leak Solution Overview

Ontracks has developed and deployed a Gas Leak Monitoring Solution using Maximo for our customer, a leading Gas Distribution company.

The leak management system now automatically creates and schedules tasks based on the initial leak entry.

The overall solution involves four major components:

  1. Leak Entry Application
  2. Leak Verification Application
  3. Leak Repair Application
  4. Spatial Visualization
  • Leak Entry

    End-users needed to document the particulars of a leak, such as pin the leak on a GIS map, sending address, lat/long and relevant geographic data to Maximo. Now when a leak has been entered  (using Workflow), Maximo automatically creates and schedules a Leak Verification and Leak Repair to ensure compliance timeframes are maintained based on the grade of the Leak.

  • Leak Repair

    We configured an application to track and document the details of a leak repair. The application provides robust data validation and guides the user (through the use of a conditional user interface) through the required fields based on the leak details and repair information entered.

  • Leak Verification

    This configured application is used to track and document periodic checks of active gas leaks. When a verification is submitted in Maximo the system automatically schedules the next verification (based on compliance time frames).

  • Spatial Visualization

    Maximo Spatial provides the required visualization of leaks, along with the ability to place a leak on a map and carry forward the relevant geographic data (address, lat/long, legal, etc.)
