OneBridge Teams Up with Phillips 66 to Develop Advanced Pipeline Integrity Management SAAS Solution

Onesoft Solutions Inc., January 12, 2018

OneSoft Solutions Inc. (the “Company” or “OneSoft”) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, OneBridge Solutions, Inc. (“OneBridge”), has entered into a technology license and joint development agreement with Phillips 66 to create a comprehensive pipeline integrity management software application, by migrating Phillips 66’s current pipeline data management system (“PT-DMS”) to a cloud-based software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) solution and integrating Machine Learning and other Data Science technologies into the application (“Integrity Management Solution” or “IMP”). IMP will be designed to integrate transparently with OneBridge’s Cognitive Integrity ManagementTM (“CIM”) solution and is targeted for use globally by oil and gas pipeline operators.

This development project with Phillips 66 represents an important milestone for OneBridge,” said Tim Edward, President. “Our vision at the outset was to develop a cloud application that enables pipeline operators to manage their pipeline assets as smart infrastructure.  CIM’s machine learning and data science components made achievement of this objective possible, and integration of these components to leverage the high level of industry expertise embedded in PT-DMS will further evolve our vision.

We are pleased and encouraged that Phillips 66 chose OneBridge to help advance their pipeline integrity platform” said Brandon Taylor, CTO of OneBridge.  “PT-DMS is one of the most comprehensive and sophisticated pipeline management solutions within the industry today, which will ease migration to the cloud and reduce time-to-market for IMP. Microsoft continues to provide strong technical, marketing and sales support for OneBridge products, and we will continue to leverage the latest Azure and data science technology in the development of IMP.  We are grateful for both Phillips 66’s and Microsoft’s collaborative efforts to assist us to create software to advance the pipeline industry’s collective objectives of operating cost reduction and zero pipeline failures.

About the Integrity Management SaaS Program

PT-DMS is a comprehensive, on-premise software solution developed by Phillips 66 as a key tool to aid in its pipeline infrastructure management process. The software addresses numerous key functional areas including: assessment plan tracking; maintaining assessment attributes; integrity management process planning based on multiple tool technologies; planning and scheduling activities for internal engineers, field teams, and tool vendors; analyses of data integrity in compliance with API 1163 regulations, general industry standards, internal company policies and priorities; anomaly worklist tracking that accommodates specific actions on a per anomaly basis; and all reporting associated with these functions. PT-DMS also addresses supporting functions including data ingestion tools; GPS and data maintenance utilities; workflows; job process queues; integrated security; and other peripheral features and functions that further supplement data management and tasks addressed by PT-DMS.

Pursuant to the terms of the agreement, OneBridge will migrate PT-DMS onto Microsoft’s Azure Cloud Platform and Services to create IMP, which will be designed to integrate seamlessly with CIM. The development project will commence immediately, with the expectation to engage private preview customers to provide input and feedback commencing in calendar Q2 2018, with market commercial availability of the initial version of IMP projected to occur in calendar Q4 of 2018. OneBridge believes that CIM and IMP will provide compelling, comprehensive and cost-effective solutions for Tier 1 oil and gas pipeline operators that wish to accelerate their digital transformation, and also for Tier 2 and Tier 3 pipeline operators that typically engage outside consultants for integrity management services rather than allocate the significant resources required to internally develop complex software systems to manage their pipelines.
