Gas HCA Tool introduction

The Gas HCA Tool is a part of G2-IS’ comprehensive pipeline integrity
management software suite that helps operators manage risk, ensure
compliance, and optimize performance. The Gas HCA Tool supports critical
natural gas pipeline regulatory analyses, including Class Location as
defined in
49 CFR §192.5, High Consequence Area (HCA) determination as defined in
49 CFR §192.903, and Moderate Consequence Area (MCA) determination as defined in
84 FR 52180
(Docket No. PHMSA-2011-0023; Amdt. Nos. 191-26; 192-125). The Gas HCA
Tool is implemented on the world‑leading
Esri Geographic
Information System (GIS) platform and is fully compatible with the
latest version of Esri’s flagship GIS desktop application,
ArcGIS Pro. The Gas HCA Tool includes support for Esri’s legacy desktop GIS
ArcGIS Desktop. The Gas HCA Tool is designed for use with the latest versions of the
widely popular
Pipeline Open Data Standard (PODS)
Esri Utility and Pipeline Data Model
(UPDM) data storage models.

The Gas HCA Tool is implemented in the Esri ArcGIS
framework as a Python module, together with an accompanying collection
Python toolbox
model tools. This allows you to use the Gas HCA Tool on the desktop
and/or expose Gas HCA Tool
geoprocessing services
ArcGIS Enterprise
or in web apps.

By design, the analytical workflows of the Gas HCA Tool are
highly configurable. The Gas HCA Tool provides you with a suite
of high-level analytical workflows that can be used as-is, or as a base
for customization. The high-level workflows of the
Gas HCA Master Tools
are implemented as ModelBuilder model tools; each of which, in turn, is
composed of multiple
Gas HCA Tool
Python toolbox tools called in sequence to effect the workflow. Each
tool has its own set of parameters for configuration. You are free to
make copies of the Gas HCA Master Tools ModelBuilder model tools and
modify them as you wish to best suit your own needs.

Licensing for the Gas HCA Tool is flexible and provides you with several
licensing options, including traditional perpetual licenses, as well as
software subscriptions. The Gas HCA Tool
toolset provides licensing utility tools that allow you to request and
register a license for the software.
