AyaBiz In-Line Inspection (ILI) Management

AyaBiz In-Line Inspection (ILI) Management


In the US 2.4 million miles of natural gas pipelines serve more than 71 million residential, commercial and industrial customers. For the operators of these natural gas pipelines, no issue is more important than ensuring safe, reliable pipelines as well as public confidence in those systems. In-line inspection is essential to maintaining and demonstrating the safety, integrity and reliability of pipeline systems and to deliver safe and reliable natural gas services.

AyaBiz® ILI Management Solution captures and manages ILI information electronically as fieldwork is performed, improving data capture efficiency while ensuring regulatory compliance and pipeline safety, and ultimately, allowing your pipeline to run more profitably. Because AyaBiz information capture is evidence-based, the focus can shift from whether work has occurred to work quality and performance.

AAyaBiz ILI Management comprises several key components, including:

  • 24/7 Web access provides managers a real-time view into inspection schedules, digs, and the occurrence of key risk events to lines (such as third-party pipeline damage, pitting and metal loss from pipeline corrosion or mechanical damage)—anytime, from anywhere. It also eliminates back-office paperwork processing and lost documents.
  • AyaBiz ILI Web Portal provides a comprehensive visual representation of ILI work focused on protecting critical infrastructure and maintaining regulatory compliance. It’s the information and workflow portal to a geo-coded asset management database. The portal provides a view into pipeline infrastructure and ILI management workflow from scheduling through remediation to completion, along with the associated reports and audit data.
  • Using the AyaBiz ILI Portal, supervisors can review ILI dig site details and workflow (from pre-dig through ingress, excavation, inspection, remediation, completion and egress) with photos and field notes—quickly and collaboratively. Managers can review the dig site, with pipeline data, the GPS pinpoint location of exposures as well as field captured information about inspection vendors, soil type and characteristics, pipe coating characteristics and condition, repairs undertaken, etc. This data enables early detection of potential pipeline safety risks and rapid remediation.
  • AyaBiz ILI Dashboard allows supervisors to review fieldwork statistics and technician performance metrics, then schedule re-training as necessary. Managers can prepare dig site completion stats, and outsourced inspection services cost reports easily, for any time period.
  • AyaBiz ILI Mobile automatically captures verifiable time and GPS-based ILI dig data as well as excavation and inspection vendors, soil type and characteristics, pipe coating characteristics and condition, equipment details, remediation and repairs undertaken, etc.) along with readings, photos, and field notes. AyaBiz ILI Mobile gathers compliance information as the work is conducted, reducing paperwork and improving compliance reporting efforts.
  • AyaBiz GPS-Tagged Database stores GPS-tagged leak survey information enabling simple search functions that reduce audit preparation time and costs. The AyaBiz business intelligence layer automates ILI compliance data analysis and streamlines review and audit processes.
  • AyaBiz is easily customized to streamline your workflow, workflow review, fieldwork forms as well as your display characteristics.
