ROSEN Group is about to launch its new digital integrity management solution, NIMA, during this year’s IPC / IPE in Canada. According to ROSEN the new solution is offering customers a basis for secure decision-making by providing an accurate reflection of individual integrity management processes and easy access to all necessary data. The company expects NIMA to set a new standard in the oil and gas industry.
Every asset is unique in its mechanical characteristics, operational conditions, physical location, and applicable legislation and/or technical standards. Although the general methods and techniques of identifying and managing the various integrity threats have been normalized over the last decades, the interpretation of standards and regulations as well as their application still differs greatly between operators. A uniform approach to asset integrity management is therefore downright impossible.
Additionally, more and more regulations now require that all pipeline records be traceable, verifiable and complete. However, with the amounts of collected data steadily growing, the establishment of a system of record where all available data is readily accessible is becoming an increasingly critical issue for pipeline operators.
Fully integrated into ESRI ArcGIS Pro, and thus providing the full power of ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing, NIMA offers an intuitive and reliable way to keep pipeline records traceable, verifiable and complete. Furthermore, it is a platform that allows for the autonomous definition and modification of integrity management processes and integrated algorithms as needed. Not restricted to a set of predefined functionalities, it offers the user unlimited options in terms of adaptation to individual requirements as new process templates can be created and existing ones altered at any point in time.
NIMA comes with a certified standard set of templates for the most common integrity management processes. These processes are developed by ROSEN’s in-house integrity assessment engineers and have proven their practicability in numerous integrity assessments. Moreover, NIMA allows users to digitize their own processes and share them with colleagues and even with other operators, always allowing for individual adaptations. This way, users participate in an industry-wide knowledge exchange.
NIMA provides customers with different levels of support, ranging from instant remote execution of tasks straight on their cloud platform instance to expert advice on a specific integrity issue to the training of their personnel.
