The Facilities Data Manager (FDM), XFIALS and DaVinci Projects use a unique combination of geo-spatial data base technology, electronic document management and CAD technology to graphically maintain pipeline facilities data. The same common ORACLE 8i™ database (called ORION) hosts cathodic protection measurements, in-line inspection measurements and pipeline risk analysis data. AM/FM/GIS is used to support pipeline risk applications. We will follow the processes involved with using pipeline facilities data and pipeline measurement data to quantitatively calculate the risk of pipeline failures. Pipeline measurement data sets in our database include: mechanical damage susceptibility, pipeline inspections, close interval surveys, hydrostatic test and in-line inspection data.
