We design our products and services with one goal in mind: To make it easy for oil and gas transmission or distribution companies to keep their assets safe and in compliance with relevant regulations like 49 CFR 192 and 195. To this end, we offer:

  • Bullhorn® remote monitors that keep tabs on your facility when you can't make it out to the field to take measurements.
  • AllegroTM Field Data PCs that help you gather facility data quickly and accurately when you do make a site visit.
  • MicroMaxTM current interrupters that are small, lightweight and easy to use.
  • PCSTM compliance software that captures and analyzes corrosion data, and generates reports that help with regulatory compliance, planning for surveys or maintenance, and operational troubleshooting. It can be used independently or, for greater efficiency, with our Allegro and Bullhorn products.
  • Risk Intelligence Platform (RIPL™) software, which supports typical integrity management activities like risk assessment and in-line inspection management, and can be integrated with our other products for ease of use.
  • An array of professional services, from training on our products to IM services like risk and HCA analyses.
