WBI Energy, a subsidiary of the MDU Resources Group, owns and operates more than 3800 miles of natural gas pipeline covering North Dakota, Montana, South Dakota, and Wyoming. With more than eight decades of energy-field experience in the Rocky Mountain Region, the experienced professionals at WBI Energy can provide a variety of energy field services to help you maximize your profit potential.
Other assets include three underground storage fields in Montana and Wyoming and a large volume of compressor stations – the pumps that supply the force to move the gas through the pipeline.
Maintaining these assets (and being able to prove they had done so) is key to meeting the compliance requirements set out by PHMSA (Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety Administration). WBI Energy was struggling to achieve this using their current paper tracking system.
After a couple of compliance near-misses, WBI knew they had to make a change. By implementing IBM Maximo Oil & Gas
and Maximo Anywhere
, they have been able to take control of their compliance, improve their processes, and reduce daily manual tasks for their teams out in the field.
