General Rate Case Filing

GTS provided data validation for approximately 800 miles of pipeline for one of our client’s General Rate Case Filing. This project involved reviewing thousands of As-Built documents for historical strength tests, summarizing our findings into proposed projects to address missing test records, and assisting the client in completing necessary Work Papers required for the Rate Case Filing.

Integrity Management Flagged Segments

As part of GTS’s continued support for one of a client’s Integrity Management (IM) group, engineers reviewed and completed MAOP validation for nearly 190 miles of transmission pipeline. As part of the review and MAOP validation, GTS confirmed the validity of historical strength test records, if available, to ensure the strength test multiplier was adequate to address the suspected manufacturing defects.
