GSS offers ERM customers the benefit of automated gas scheduling functionality in a single platform. It tracks flows from purchase to endpoint, including relationships between pipelines based on transportation contracts. The module’s user defined reporting tools create a wide variety of reports, displays, and charts for managing gas data.
