C55 for Natural Gas

Delivering the highest value and integrity from assets in natural gas

C55™ is meeting the investment decision challenges of gas utilities head-on.

Aging assets, an aging workforce, increasing regulation, and high demands in an era of scarce resources are forcing natural gas utilities to rethink their approach to investment planning and management. Value-based decision making in a transparent, data-driven environment is the formula for success.

Risk-Informed Asset Investment Planning at ONE Gas

Utilities are facing increasing pressure to demonstrate they have a robust long-term strategy in place to manage their asset-related risks. ONE Gas selected Copperleaf C55 as part of a larger overall corporate transformation to centralize asset management and asset investment decision making across three states. Today, ONE Gas has over two million assets loaded in C55. According to Matt Fulghum, Director of Asset Investment Planning & Management: “Across the enterprise, ONE Gas can look holistically at these assets, scope projects, and optimize a work plan that delivers the most value to our stakeholders.”

Tangible, Measurable Results

The Copperleaf™ C55 Decision Analytics solution is now live at National Grid Gas Transmission (NGGT), which owns and operates the high-pressure gas transmission network, comprising of over 7,660 km of pipe and 618 above-ground installations in Great Britain. Copperleaf interviewed NGGT team members Neil Tansley, Asset Modelling Manager, and Jowita Uler, Portfolio Planning Manager, to get their thoughts on the implementation and how C55 will help National Grid on its asset management journey.
