Project: Enbridge Line 3 Replacement 36-inch 1,000km Pipeline
Enbridge, a multinational energy transportation company, has selected Metegrity’s Pipeline Enterprise software as its construction quality management system (CQMS) for the largest pipeline project in North America: the Enbridge Line 3 Replacement Pipeline. The 36-inch, 1,000 km pipeline project is approaching final stages, and it has already benefitted from significant improvements to production, safety, and quality.
Enbridge selected Pipeline Enterprise for its ability to capture digital data from all facets of the pipeline’s construction, storing everything in one cloud-based database that is readily accessible and searchable. This ensures that turnover is traceable, verifiable, and complete while meeting all applicable legal requirements. This makes it the perfect tool for pipeline construction projects, as it reduces time spent during turnover and commissioning -- resulting in faster in-service time and a quicker return on investment.
Enbridge utilized the software during the project across nine spreads and nine contractors. Inspectors quickly became familiar with the iPad application and used it for their daily reports, weld inspections, and other specialized reports. Senior field staff used the desktop version to accept, reject, and comment on inspector reports, track production progress, plan next steps, and more. Metegrity is proud of the accelerated production they have been able to facilitate on projects with Enbridge thus far and looks forward to a continued successful partnership.
