Quorum Signs Two Additional Clients on Pipeline Transaction Management Software

Quorum Business Solutions, Inc. ("Quorum"), a leading provider of business and information technology solutions for the oil, gas, and renewable energy industry, announces that two natural gas pipeline operators have entered into agreements to implement Quorum Pipeline Transaction Management (QPTM) to manage their pipeline operations. With this, QPTM now manages the operations for dozens of assets.

"QPTM increases efficiencies by automating the creation and balancing of complex nominations, eliminating redundant entry of data, and enabling informed decision-making through a consolidated view of the company's position," says Scott Leeds, President and COO of Quorum. "Additionally, our solution supports compliance with the rigorous standards set forth by NAESB, which is something that many pipeline companies need."

Since its release in 2004, QPTM has been licensed at 11 major companies which include interstate pipelines, intrastate pipelines, storage facilities, and local distribution companies.

QPTM is a comprehensive software solution that allows interstate pipeline facility operators to efficiently manage transactions with shippers on their system, including contracts, scheduling, and accounting. The system automates the process of transporting natural gas by incorporating a web-based set of tools to conduct online communications between shippers and the operator. QPTM is FERC and NAESB regulatory compliant, and is configurable to reflect the latest industry requirements and evolving business environments.
