OpenSpirit Named ESRI Energy Partner of the Year

OpenSpirit, purveyor of  E&P data and application integration solutions, received the ESRI Foundation Partner of the Year award for its work in the Energy Sector at the 2010 ESRI Worldwide Business Partner Conference in Palm Springs, California.

OpenSpirit is the energy industry’s open integration and interoperability standard, enabling collaborative workflows and multi-vendor data accessibility among the diverse and complex environments used in today’s E&P asset teams. From ArcGIS Desktop to ArcGIS Server, OpenSpirit integrates with all levels of ESRI GIS technology, facilitating cross-disciplinary mapping and spatial data management workflows between GIS, geology and geophysics, as well as integrating subsurface workflows and data with surface workflows and information, such as Land, HSE, Transportation, Pipeline and other oil company departments.

The award was presented during the annual ESRI Business Partner Conference by Jack Dangermond, President of ESRI, to Brian Boulmay, Business Partner Director, OpenSpirit.

“Through the Partner of the Year Award for the Energy Sector, ESRI recognizes the outstanding contribution OpenSpirit has made in their promotion of spatial data management as a key component of an oil company’s enterprise data integration strategy,” said Dangermond. “Their revolutionary platform enables users to combine the capabilities of the ArcGIS platform with industry-leading geotechnical and geoscience solutions in elegant and highly effective practices.”

Since becoming an ESRI partner in 2000, OpenSpirit has developed a comprehensive suite of GIS tools, including an ArcGIS Desktop Extension, an ArcGIS Explorer Add-in, a Scan Utility that spatializes subsurface databases, an ArcGIS SDE Data Connector, and the integration of ArcGIS Server and ESRI Web services with OpenSpirit REST Web services. Users have the flexibility to leverage their ESRI GIS client of choice, with the simplicity of managing just one integration platform.

“We are honored to receive partner of the year recognition from ESRI,” said Dan Piette, President and CEO of OpenSpirit. “The energy industry is a spatial business, and we have focused on ensuring our technology is integrated with ESRI tools since our company’s inception. This collaboration helps our mutual customers manage their complete business workflows via a single integration layer, and ensures accurate and repeatable coordinate, unit, interoperability, and data access processes. We are continuing this focus in 2010 with the release of several new GIS products.”

GE O&G Enhances Pipeline GIS Data Management

GE Oil & Gas’ PII Pipeline Solutions business, in conjunction Colonial Pipeline Co. of Alpharetta, GA, has launched its new PipeView™ BandGen software tool that extends the capabilities of Environmental Systems Research Institute’s (ESRI) popular ArcGIS 9.3 geographical information system, which pipeline operators use for their data management programs.

            BandGen, which was unveiled at the Geospatial Information and Technology Association’s (GITA) 2009 Global Information System (GIS) for Oil & Gas Conference in Houston in September, is a powerful software extension of ArcGIS 9.3 that gives pipeline operators practical tools for managing bands, validating sheet content and generating alignment sheets directly from their database.

            Alignment sheet appearance is easily configured with out-of-the-box tools directly from ArcGIS. The module reads from all types of ESRI data base formats, it is data model independent, and it provides direct editing from bands. It can also plot unlimited line sheets, and features ad-hoc plotting capabilities.

            Colonial Pipeline Company was instrumental in assisting with the co-design and development of the BandGen tool, ensuring that the product meets the needs of the pipeline industry.

            Philippe Brejon, General Manager of Integrity Services at GE Oil & Gas’ PII Pipeline Solutions, said: “We are pleased to have partnered with Colonial Pipeline to develop PipeView BandGen as we strive to develop the most user-friendly pipeline GIS data management products available in the marketplace.”

CygNet Partners with ESRI to Link SCADA with GIS

CygNet Software is partnering with ESRI through the ESRI Developer Program to integrate geographic information systems (GIS) capabilities and data into CygNet’s next-generation SCADA offering.

“GIS software clearly has much to offer to the location-dependent complex workflows of the oil and gas industry,” said Geoff Wade, petroleum industry manager at ESRI. “CygNet has demonstrated both thought and technical leadership in the evolution of its enterprise operations platform, and we are thrilled about the combined value enhancement we will be able to deliver, particularly to the production and pipeline operations space through this innovative integration. We very much look forward to working with CygNet to further develop appropriate solutions for our respective and joint client base.”

CygNet was featured during the plenary session of the 2009 ESRI Petroleum User Group (PUG) Conference, held Feb. 23–25 in Houston. There, the company jointly demonstrated with ESRI an integrated workflow involving both GIS and SCADA.

The CygNet enterprise operations platform is currently used by more than 100 companies across oil and gas exploration, production and gas transportation to improve operational efficiency. Based on a revolutionary network architecture, users across every business function can prioritize and analyze massive amounts of real-time and historical information to support daily operations, strategic decision making and regulatory reporting requirements.

The ESRI Developer Program is designed for companies developing commercial, off-the-shelf solutions that tap ESRI’s ArcGIS software, the world’s leading GIS technology. Program members gain access to exclusive partner and marketing resources, and the opportunity to exhibit at the ESRI International User Conference and the ESRI Worldwide Business Partner Conference.

“‘Location, location, location’ is just as important to oil and gas companies as it is to home buyers,” said Steve Robb, VP business development, CygNet. “The integration of ESRI’s GIS capabilities will enable us to provide our customers with a completely new layer of information that will help them manage their distributed assets more efficiently and effectively.”
