Download our brochure

The Global Gas Pipelines Benchmark allows operators to leverage each other's expertise to succeed.

As the gas pipelines industry evolves, how are you optimizing your operations to face your new challenges?

Ageing assets, evolving environmental regulation, and the energy transition are changing the gas pipeline industry. It has never been more important for operators to focus on what they can control: their operational excellence. However, achieving continuous improvement presents significant challenges for operators, including:

  1. Lacking a roadmap for systematic continuous improvement
  2. Understanding performance gaps but not having a clear vision as how to close them
  3. Difficulty in assessing the value-optimization of existing plans
  4. Not being able to justify business plans to stakeholders

Available for:

Gas Transmission Systems
Gas Transportation
Gas Gathering
Subsea Pipelines
