SEA Gas improves efficiency of land management

The importance of effectively tracking, analysing and managing company information is recognised throughout the business world as an integral part of doing business.

SEA Gas is a partnership that has been established to develop, own and operate the underground pipeline system transporting natural gas from Iona, northeast of Port Campbell to both South Australia and Victoria. SEA Gas employs its own staff to manage and operate the pipeline system and was seeking to upgrade information management systems used to assist in managing its landholder and community relationship data.

SEA Gas was capturing data in multiple databases resulting in inefficiencies in data handling, potential introduction of errors and delays in information collected being available to the team. They recognised that being able to capture data accurately once and then use it many times would improve efficiency and in turn reduce costs.

Enter Mipela GeoSolutions.

Mipela GeoSolutions offered SEA Gas a solution with its X-Info Suite Online. The solution is fully supported and maintained, reliable and easy to use, allowing users to:

  • Record landholder, property information, contacts, conversations, emails and other relevant communications for many parcels of land and hundreds of landowners

  • Provide links within the software to relevant documents stored on the server or hyperlinks to relevant websites that can assist with the preparation of documents
  • Provide simultaneous secure access to information for an unlimited number of internal and authorised external users, when required

The aim for SEA Gas was to have a robust system that supported and streamlined the existing . The company wanted to ensure a future where they had auditable records of communicating with  on safety matters and could be assured of accurately tracking landholder issues to resolution.
