The increasing global demand for natural gas and expanding infrastructure and capacity will require natural gas pipeline operators to look for innovative ways to manage their commercial pipeline operations more efficiently. To capitalize on these changes, asset operators will require real-time, accurate data and operational analysis tools to manage pipeline capacity, constraints, and shipper and marketer nominations and requests.
This is why FIS now offers a turnkey SaaS solution for the operators of FERC-regulated U.S. interstate and regional natural gas pipelines, as well as CRE-regulated Mexican natural gas pipelines. Delivering the same integrated core capabilities as FIS’ Aligne suite – which is used by some of the world’s largest integrated energy firms, producers, utilities and pipeline operators – FIS’ Aligne SaaS | Pipe Ops Express helps streamline the nominations, scheduling, contract maintenance, allocations, imbalances, and invoicing processes.
Here’s how Aligne SaaS | Pipe Ops Express benefits natural gas pipeline operators:
Aligne SaaS | Pipe Ops Express is ideal for smaller pipeline operators and owners who are looking to move away from spreadsheets that often limit reporting, auditing and scaling as their businesses expand. For larger pipeline operators, this solution offers reduced up-front capital costs, a higher level of flexibility to keep up with market change and security needs, rapid implementation, and reduced need for IT staff.
Aligne SaaS | Pipe Ops Express is NAESB-compliant and is generally available to the North American markets.
