HCA-MCA Analysis Help

Gas HCA Tool provides powerful dynamic segmentation functionality output that clearly indicates the number of structures and/or identified sites impacting any given pipe segment, and which segments qualify as an HCA or MCA. Regulatory requirements around HCA-MCA analysis create complex implications for how you manage your pipeline, Maximum Allowable Operating Pressure (MAOP), integrity management and assessment plans, and protection of the community and environment. Gas HCA Tool integrates seamlessly into your IT environment and the ESRI platform, allowing access to tool functionality from the desktop, the command line, as a scheduled service, or as a REST geoprocessing service. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) enforces this through regulatory standards. HCA-MCA analysis specifically falls under the requirements of 49 CFR §192.903(1)).
