Houston, TX — April 1, 2021: EnerACT Energy Services (EnerACT), a leader in software tools for the pipeline industry, has acquired P.I. Confluence (PIC) to expand its capability to support program management. The Program Suite software offered by PIC provides process management and stakeholder feedback tools to support pipeline operators in their implementation of safety management and operations performance.
PIC provides a complete governance control system for managing processes, workflow, communications, and information exchange. PIC’s software is uniquely fit for implementing process management and stakeholder communication to support API Pipeline SMS (PSMS) and to achieve regulatory compliance.
“The acquisition of P.I. Confluence (PIC) was a natural fit to enhance our regulatory and compliance capabilities for pipeline operations customers,” says Russel Treat, CEO of EnerACT. “As regulators’ expectations move toward auditing each operator’s processes and implementation records, the ability to provide the who, what, when, where, and why associated with execution has become more important than the actual ‘governance/plan’ itself. The PIC tools provide the means to effectively manage all of the data.”
Within the Program Suite are three web-based process management software tools (ComplyMgr, ICAM, and pSEc) that allow operators to document their programs and their compliance to regulations (ComplyMgr), implement their plan-do-check-act processes for implementing their program (ICAM), and optimize stakeholders communication to determine if they are seeing the desired safety and operational impacts (pSEc).
“We appreciate the opportunity to deliver software tools to more pipeline operators across North America through our addition to the EnerACT family,” says Sheila Howard, PIC VP & Software Solutions Manager. “When an operator’s API-driven Safety Management System is linked with the PIC Program Suite, it ensures that all areas of the PSMS are fully deployed throughout all levels of the organization. This is incredibly valuable in today’s pipeline safety and regulatory environment.”
