iPIPE Receives 2019 IOGCC Chairman’s Stewardship Award
Toledo, OH – February 10, 2020 – Satelytics Inc., celebrates the Intelligent Pipeline Integrity Program (iPIPE) receiving the Chairman’s Stewardship Award for Environmental Partnership at the 2019 Annual Interstate Oil & Gas Compact Commission (IOGCC) Conference. Satelytics is a funded technology partner of iPIPE, an industry-led consortium whose focus is to contribute to the advancement of near-commercial, emerging technologies to prevent and detect gathering pipeline leaks. The program is a direct response to North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum’s 2017 challenge to industry to apply emerging technology to address the challenge of eliminating pipeline leaks.
Burgum, the 2019 IOGCC Chairman, presented the stewardship award to iPIPE at this year’s conference. “By harnessing the power of technology and public–private partnerships, iPIPE is making great strides toward solutions to the problem of pipeline leaks or spills within the gathering system in our state,” said Governor Burgum, who also chairs the North Dakota Industrial Commission. “We appreciate IOGCC members for recognizing the efforts made by industry and the Industrial Commission to address this important issue through innovation, and congratulations to all of the program partners.”
“It’s an honor that the efforts of iPIPE received this recognition for innovation, dedication and passion for the environment,” said Brent Lohnes, general manager in North Dakota for Hess Corporation and iPIPE consortium partner. “With our core industry partners, iPIPE has embraced the best of new technologies and is improving the safety of pipeline operations.”
