California, USA, 18 April 2006: ESRI has announced that National Fuel Gas Company (NFG) has selected ESRI to provide a core enterprise GIS technology platform to support the company’s transmission and utility operations. ESRI technology is already in use at National Fuel’s Timber segment.
The new platform will be the foundation for the deployment of a pipeline data repository, pipeline data maintenance and integration tools, and domain specialty applications necessary to support National Fuel’s transmission pipeline integrity management program in its Pipeline and Storage and Utility segments. In addition, National Fuel will migrate from its legacy AM/FM/GIS system to the new platform. Based on ESRI’s ArcGIS software, this new GIS platform will optimize support for engineering and mapping application requirements for an enterprise asset repository and management system within its Utility segment.
