This is one of the largest working groups of the PODS Association. Five subgroups (Construction; Design/Engineering/FEL; Environmental; Field Survey/Land/ROW and Operations) have been established. Their primary objective is to improve integration of collected as-built data from pipeline construction, into the PODS data model.
5.1. This project will improve integration of collected required as-built data and documentation from pipeline construction and loading such data and documentation into the Operator’s PODS database, allowing existing Operator’s PODS information to interchange with new construction databases in the early stages of the new construction process.
5.2. Demonstrated financial savings through improved and increasingly accurate data developed through the collection and verifying of the information digitally, in PODS format, as the project progresses.
5.3. This PODS enhancement provides a better definition of data-related regulatory requirements associated with new construction, helping Pipeline Operators compliance with these regulations.
5.4. Pipeline Operators will be able to specify and contractually require strict adherence to these Data Standards for New Construction.
