January 21 is fast approaching. Are you ready?

If you are an operator in Saskatchewan, you probably already know that by January 21, 2021, you need to have either completed your retroactive flowline license submissions, or have provided the Ministry of Energy and Resources (MER) with a plan that outlines your intent to have all submissions completed no later than January 21, 2024.

Not sure where to start? We can help.

At GDM Pipelines, we are the experts when it comes to managing Saskatchewan pipeline data. And, we have already worked with several operators to complete their retroactive flowline submissions, so we know exactly what is required.

We make completing your licensing as easy as 1-2-3…

Step 1: Organize Your Data

GDM has the most comprehensive database of Saskatchewan flowlines available today. This provides an ideal starting point for you to confirm your pipeline inventory and attributes. As you validate your data, we can store it within our database. Then, when it comes time to create your submission, everything you need will be available in one spot.

Step 2: Compile Your Data

Once your data has been collected, GDM can create the Retroactive Licensing Template for you, complete with your company’s full inventory of flowlines. We will ensure the minimum level of attributes are incorporated, including populating the template with the accurate lat/long coordinates or creating the shapefile for you.

Step 3: Submit Your Data

Once the file is created, we can complete the submission to IRIS on your behalf. We will monitor the process to resolve any technical submission constraints or logic errors to ensure everything is properly updated.

Let's get started! Whether you have 100 or 1,000 flowlines to license, our team has the expertise to get your submissions completed quickly and accurately. Let us take the stress and guesswork out of this process for you!
