Employing published information and sharing monitoring apparatus and studies, were the initial solution adopted to reach a rain monitoring process in Transpetro (Petrobras Transporte S.A.) southern ROWs. This type of approach can be easily establish and allows the operator to reach satisfactory results, especially for those that has no controlled process at all, where a small amount of information leads for some result even if it is to clarify the need and the resources for such kind of approach.

Even being quite conservative and bit superficially, the process recently established in Transpetro, has already brought a slight economy and safety. Aiming to show the process flow, this paper does not concentrates in reflecting the trigger point, instead it reflects the experience and general methods applied for checking forecasts and rainfall index.
