PAA Case Study

Octane accelerates implementation of Operations Management System based on API RP 1173

PAA embarked on the implementation of an Operations Management System (OMS) in 2015 in response to in internal desire to improve operations and the publication of a new API recommended practice for Pipeline Safety Management Systems (API RP 1173). As the design was being completed, PAA initiated a search for a software solution to support both the validation of their new management system framework, and their management system implementation activities.

“I'm glad we have Octane. I can't imagine doing these assessments with a spreadsheet.” - Mark Gorman, Executive Vice-President, Plains All American Pipeline
