Facility Reports for Gas Gathering

Pipeline operators are required to report on their gas gathering system annually. The Facility Reports for Gas Gathering solution can be used to help summarize information needed for this annual report. In addition to summarizing the report content, the results can be published to your ArcGIS organization as a service, map, and app. The summary report can also be exported out as a CSV file.

The reports include summarizations of Onshore Type A, Onshore Type B, and Offshore pipe by material, installation decade, DOT class, and nominal diameter. Additionally, this solution includes summarization reports of eliminated or repaired leaks by cause.


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 Gathering.

Date Description
November 2020
  • Facility Reports for Gas Gathering has been retired.
October 2019
June 2017
  • 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
  • Most recent version of the Automated Setup & Reporting tools. See the release notes for more details.
  • An update to the data query expressions from EXTRACT(YEAR from CURRENT_DATE) to a hard coded date.
  • The most recent Utility and Pipeline Data Model with sample data.
December 2015
  • First release of Facility Reports for Gas Gathering

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.
