On-Demand Risk Scores are Now Available for Every Pipeline in Western Canada

CALGARY, AB, September 25, 2018 – GDM Pipelines (“GDM”), the leader in midstream information management solutions, and Explore Inc. (“Explore”), premier pipeline risk management and integrity specialists, announced today that they have released Converge Risk Manager, an on-demand risk assessment solution that provides an “out of the box” risk score for every pipeline in Western Canada. This is the latest extension to the full breadth of integrity services offered through gX Insight, a joint initiative launched by GDM and Explore last fall.

“Pipeline risk solutions on the market today are inherently risky”, said Brian Hall, President of GDM Pipelines. “They are expensive, complicated and time-consuming to set up, and are often built on incomplete or inaccurate data. We saw an opportunity to use GDM’s industry-leading data and Explore’s integrity expertise to remove these barriers. Now, operators can see their overall pipeline risk without the traditional upfront investment.”

Hall continued, “What we have created is more than just another pipeline risk management tool. For the first time, industry has access to a persistent database of risk information, available on demand. It’s simple and easy to use, yet still delivers the complex information organizations need to effectively manage their pipeline risk. And, this is just the beginning. We are excited about our plans to continue enhancing this solution over the coming months.”

Converge Risk Manager is being unveiled for the first time today at the International Pipeline Expo in Calgary. Visit Booth 706 to see this new solution in action. Or, find more information here.
