Identify pipe assets with the highest emissions and leak density, remove 1.5x more leaks through replacement projects, and save $ millions in O&M annually
Picarro’s pipe replacement solution augments your Distribution Integrity Risk (DIMP) models with real-time methane data and applies powerful analytics to help you prioritize and remediate 1.5x more leaks. This could mean up to $35k additional O&M cost avoided per mile of pipe replaced versus your existing risk models. A utility with 10,000 miles of mains, replacing 1% annually, could see up to $3.5M recurring annual O&M cost avoidance.
Conventional DIMP models are only as good as the historical data that informs them. Plus, risk calculations often give disproportionate weight to just a handful of key threats and sub-threats.
Picarro integrates real-time methane data to DIMP models and then applies powerful spatial analytics and visualization tools to create a clearer, deeply contextualized, and more predictive view of gas assets.
- Optimize capital prioritization decisions associated with major pipeline replacement initiatives.
- Develop a more accurate understanding of risk across gas systems as well as a more granular understanding of specific risk areas.
- Improve forecasting of annual O&M expenditures associated with compliance and leak repair activities.
- More efficiently scope and design the construction of pipe replacement projects.
