Gulf Publishing Company, a leading media company and provider of market data for the international energy industry, on Sunday the Energy Web Atlas to provide the downstream energy sector with easy access to information about the Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) industry.
A real-time project information platform, the ESRI-based Energy Web Atlas (EWA) is a compilation of geospatial datasets covering the energy industry with maps and data dedicated to the LNG industry. It delivers actionable market intelligence within one easy-to-use, web-based resource.
“Data is always changing and searching for statistics and analysis related to LNG—such as project details and status, shipping routes and vessel data—can be time consuming and cumbersome,” said Scott Allgood, director of data for Gulf Publishing Company. “The Energy Web Atlas provides professionals in the industry with a much needed, quick and easy way to access real-time data that is required for daily decision-making.”
Allgood says EWA is a one-stop source for comprehensive industry intelligence. Tracking close to 500 LNG facilities and projects, EWA allows users to interrogate and export real-time project data, including details such as owner/operator, project status, storage and capacity.
The system, which can visualize the datasets against a variety of base maps including satellite imagery, allows users to search by company/project status, access up-to-date project contact details, search global pipeline data, view gas/gas-condensate fields, statistics, LNG shipping routes, and vessel data.
Another benefit to users is the ability to assess projects on a regional or national scale and to zoom in for a more detailed analysis of a particular area. The LNG datasets are updated in real time by a dedicated support team of researchers and cartographers, and subscribers can use the platform to create customized, export-ready production-quality charts, graphs and maps.
In addition, a geospatial map tracking U.S. gas processing plants is also available on the Energy Web Atlas. This platform gives users access to detailed data and direct contacts for more than 500 gas processing plants in the U.S. The dataset also includes information on more than 400 natural gas underground storage locations and 58 natural gas storage hubs.
In addition to the direct contact information, the gas processing geospatial dataset includes plant details (plant type/flow, BTU content, infrastructure), owner/operator information, plant status and more.
In 2018, additional geospatial maps and datasets covering diverse businesses such as renewable energy, downstream construction projects, petrochemicals, and oil and gas pipeline infrastructure will be added to the Energy Web Atlas.
