There are more than 2.5 million miles of pipelines in the United States and about 3,000 pipeline operators, according to the U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.

At a time when pipelines are a political hot button, Houston-based Willbros Group says it will collaborate with GeoEye to develop a cloud-based pipeline integrity management solution.

The solution will provide customers easy access to real-time pipeline information integrated with GeoEye’s high-resolution, map-accurate commercial satellite imagery served from the Google Earth Builder platform. The solution addresses the pipeline industry’s need for timely and cost-effective access to accurate integrity management data to help them maintain and update aging pipeline infrastructure and comply with federal regulations and safety requirements.

Built on the intuitive cloud-based Google Earth Builder platform, the solution will augment customers’ existing GIS platforms with a single, reliable source for accessing vital pipeline integrity information for about half the cost of traditional disparate methods, helping operators better manage risk, lower operating costs and improve pipeline performance.
