City Gas Distribution abbreviated as CGD is the distribution of natural gas to domestic, industrial, commercial, and transport sectors through a network of pipelines. It has attracted a large number of companies to invest in gas distribution pipeline networks.

Gas Pipeline

A Few Advantages of GIS System Implementation:

  • GIS helps in asset management by locating pipeline assets such as main and service lines by tracking their coordinates and calculating their relative distances
  • Leak management and analysis is swifter as GIS provides faster response time in case of a leak or an accident, by sharing the information of the incident to the response team
  • GIS stores consumer data and various thematic maps can be prepared to identify future potential consumers and plan the pipeline network accordingly
  • Study of demand and supply of consumers through survey and mapping can help in the expansion planning of the pipeline network and prediction of the future growth can be accessed
  • To produce calculations such as pressure, inlet quantity of the gas etc., as well as to generate maps and BoM showing various design parameters at all nodes and lines
  • Flexibility to change the design to suit the site conditions
  • Ability to manually adjust the automatically calculated locations
  • For operations and maintenance, it is important to identify weak sections of the pipeline and to replace the segment to prevent a leak or an accident. Pipes made of steel or iron are subject to rust due to environmental factors which needs to undergo cathodic protection.
  • Optimal DPRS location, service area & routing for substantial cost saving
  • Plan route to ensure maximum reach with minimum length
  • Reduce the network design time
  • Network size critically designed to ensure supply pressure at consumer & intermediate points without over/ under sizing any element
