ABOUT POEMS® CERTIFIED TOOLS: EnerACT developed a suite of robust software tools to support each critical area of pipeline operations. POEMS Certified software tools have passed a rigorous development process to meet the evolving needs of operators to support pipeline safety management, regulatory and compliance requirements, control room operations, and field operations.
ABOUT NATURAL COMPLIANCE: Natural Compliance occurs when the systems used in pipeline operations to perform the work follow an operator’s procedures and naturally create records. Operators are required to be in compliance with a variety of detailed regulations. Regulatory compliance is best achieved when it is the natural result of performing the work. Procedures document what an operator says they will do, and records provide evidence that tasks were performed in compliance with procedures.
