DUBLIN, Ohio -- DNV CCT has released Corr MD - an integrated data management tool that maintains information regarding the integrity of both onshore and offshore pipeline systems. It provides operators with the information needed to analyze data and prevent corrosion problems, according to DNV.

The tool provides both guidance for collecting the data, and directions for proper usage and data management. Unlike current risk-management and corrosion assessment tools, DNV says, Corr MD manages information from a multitude of corrosion monitoring and test results, such as gas analysis, coupon monitoring, liquid composition, pig residues, inhibitor and biocide use, operational conditions, etc.

The software can be customized based on client input. The tool includes interactive, logic-driven data entry forms. User-defined reporting parameters, data assessment, record retention, and automated task scheduling assist in compliance with 49 CFR 192 and 49 CFR 195 in the US and CSA Z662 in Canada. The tool also offers tiered security levels, image-storing capacity, and is compliant with Pipeline Open Data Standard (PODS), Orbit+Pipeline, and other industry-recognized risk and integrity management systems.
