M3 Midstream and Photo Science recently selected and optimized a 25-mile NGL pipeline route in the Utica using the suitability grid analysis methodology. The routing methodology analyzes and combines multiple grids from three major perspectives: the natural environment, built environment, and engineered environment. It uses Esri ArcGIS technology to map all geographic features, assign stakeholder-generated suitability values, generate corridor alternatives using computer algorithms and create reports summarizing criteria used and values assigned. The Methodology has proved to be objective, consistent and defensible.
This presentation will give an overview of this routing methodology. This presentation will discuss the need for a standardized methodology, give an overview of the methodology, and discuss lessons learned from over 71 utility project implementations in 8 states. The audience will come away with a better understanding of this innovative approach that can help them improve their new infrastructure development processes.
