Overview

Facility Reports for Gas Transmission

Utilities are required to report on their gas transmission system annually. The Facility Reports for Gas Transmission solution can be used to help summarize information needed for annual reports. In addition to summarizing the report content, a feature service, map, a web app of the reports are published and shared to your ArcGIS organization. The summary report can also be exported as a CSV file.

This solution provide the follow reports:

  • Transmission Pipe by HCA Miles
  • Onshore Transmission Pipe
  • Offshore Transmission Pipe
  • Onshore Transmission Pipe by DOT Class and SMYS
  • Offshore DOT Class 1 Transmission Pipe by Percent SMYS
  • Onshore Transmission Pipe by DOT Class
  • Offshore Transmission Pipe by DOT Class
  • Eliminated and Repaired Onshore Leaks by Leak Cause
  • Eliminated and Repaired Offshore Leaks by Leak Cause
  • All Failures in HCA by Leak Cause
  • Known Leaks on Transmission Pipe
  • Transmission Pipe with a MAOP Determination Method
  • Transmission Pipeline by Pressure Test and Internal Inspection

This solution utilizes the ArcREST and SolutionReportTools Python packages to calculate the report content and publish the service, maps and app.

Warning

Please review the known issues before configuration of this solution on your data.

What's new

Below are the release dates and notes for Facility Reports for Gas Transmission.

Date Description
June 2017
  • A resolution to an issue in the PreProcessingPipeDOT geoprocessing model where the wrong pipe was being assigned to the DOT area.
  • An update to two reports, Data Summarization of Onshore Transmission Pipe by DOT Class and Data Summarization of Offshore Transmission Pipe by DOT Class, to use the PipeDOTClass layer. The filter SQL of these reports has also been updated to summarize only active features with a system type of offshore transmission.
  • Most recent version of the Automated Setup & Reporting tools that includes the following:
    • Support for ArcGIS 10.5.
    • A resolution to a bug in which using a custom length field in the report summary would result in incorrect results. When reporting on a custom length field, values can now be proportionally split when setting the new reclass report parameter, AdjustCountField, to true (BUG-000100918).
    • A new parameter in the reclass report configuration, ReportAreasOverlap, which reports when a feature is split and the sum of the parts do not equal the original feature length. The logic is similar to the Pairwise Intersect tool, which results in faster processing.
    • A new parameter in the reclass report configuration, ReclassType, which determines how features that span multiple reporting areas will be summarized.
June 2016
  • A resolution to an issue in which the pre-processing geoprocessing models did not preserve the Global ID field of input feature classes.
  • The UPDM.gdb has been removed and replaced with the NapervilleGas.gdb.
  • The ReportingArea parameter now uses the P_ServiceArea included with the NapervilleGas.gdb.
February 2016
  • An update to the data query expressions from EXTRACT(YEAR from CURRENT_DATE) to a hard coded date.
  • Most recent version of the Automated Setup & Reporting tools. See the release notes for more details.
August 2015
  • Latest versions of the ArcREST tools
    • ArcREST version 3
  • Config file enhancements
May 2015
  • First release of Facility Reports for Gas Transmission

Known issues

  • The automated setup uses ArcREST, which does not support application and enterprise logins.
  • When publishing to Portal for ArcGIS, the Hosting Server must use an ArcGIS Data Store as a managed geodatabase.
  • When publishing to Portal for ArcGIS with an ArcGIS Data Store Hosting Server, field names will be auto converted to lowercase. The tools will update the maps created, but apps are not updated to handle this conversion.
  • The script is delivered using relative paths. To use this without changing to absolute paths, you need to have python.exe as the default file extension for .py files and the path to Python in your systems path variable.
