Sui Southern Gas Company Limited (SSGC) has become the first company in Pakistan to implement Telvent Miner & Miner's ArcFM Solution for their Karachi, Sindh, and Balochistan region operations.

The vision of the SSGC GIS project is to create and maintain an efficient GIS environment that fosters geographic data sharing within the commercial, transmission, distribution, engineering, management, and other departments. The current GIS system provides fast and easy web access to users, showing pipeline and land use data and aiding in the understanding and visualization of feature locations. SSGC is the first utility company in Pakistan that has undertaken development of a large-scale and high-resolution GIS system for its gas pipeline network. SSGC has been recognized by ESRI for excellence in the GIS field with a 2006 Special Achievement in GIS award at the 2006 Annual ESRI International User Conference in San Diego, California.

The focus of the ArcFM Solution implementation will be to bring significant business value to the organization for managing workflows and distributed information being shared across the organization, including reduction of overall operating costs and improved customer service. SSGC will be able to reduce data maintenance overhead and improve data accuracy by integrating facility design, analysis, and mapping functions into a single process. The company also runs SCADA solution, Oracle's ERP E-Business Suite, and Customer Care and is planning to integrate them with the GIS.

Zuhair Siddiqui, Chief Information Officer at SSGC, says, "The ArcFM Solution will give our company a complete utility-specific system for modeling, editing, maintaining, and managing facility asset data thus enhancing the design, analysis, and operations processes. Improved business process and service-with-a-smile are the ultimate goals for SSGC. ArcFM will play an essential role in achieving these objectives."
