Flow optimization in the Eurasian gas pipeline network, WIEH GmbH, Berlin, Germany

For the Wintershall Erdgas Trading House GmbH & Co. KG, Fichtner IT Consulting planned and implemented a GIS-based IT system to display the network and facilities of the Eurasian pipeline network and for the cost-optimized calculation of network flows. With the components ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Network Analyst, Geoserver, for geodata processing visualization, as well as GAMS for the cost-optimized calculation of network capacity flows, sales and trade-related workflows at WIEH were significantly supported. In addition, specific interfaces were implemented for the integration of the network charge calculation and network charge costing. The application thus contributes to security of supply and optimized gas distribution.
