Digital Transformation at Energy Transfer

Energy Transfer (ET) is a midstream energy company headquartered in Houston Texas. ET has 90k miles of pipeline, 477 facilities and 10k employees. The amount of data that ET needs immediate access to daily is massive. ET, like other companies that distribute energy, needed real time data in order to process and disseminate information to people, departments and facilities enterprise-wide. 

"We broke our hard ROI into 3 categories - time savings, cost avoidance, and decision support. Using dataPARC, with only 1 year completed, we've captured more than $10M in annualized savings."

A Single Source of Truth

dataPARC provided Energy Transfer with enterprise-wide data visibility, representing more than 6 million tags at over 100 sites,

$10M Annual Savings

Energy Transfer realized more than $10 million in annualized savings, with zero system downtime during implementation.

Faster Decision-Making

Real-time data infrastructure allows Energy Transfer to make operational decisions before the window of opportunity has passed.

Energy Transfer's Challenges

Before dataPARC was implemented, data silos were common and data from multiple systems did not connect to each other. Not only was mining for data a huge time drain, it did not allow decision makers time to make operational decisions before the window of opportunity had passed. ET’s previous data management systems were difficult to integrate, and they varied enterprise wide. In addition to the difficulties of integration, different reporting methods were used at various sites resulting in a lack of consistent information being shared.

"We consume nearly a dozen external data sources that help us enrich our data - weather data, power data, pricing data... dataPARC allows us to get more value from what we already have."

Tyler Fedun, Manager, IT Operations

The dataPARC Solution

During year one, dataPARC was used at the Mont Belvieu Fractionation facility and the beginnings of digital transformation began. Mont Belvieu increased operational efficiency, integrated and streamlined environmental monitoring and reporting, and consolidated data across several other assets. It soon became apparent that dataPARC was the right choice for enabling Energy Transfer’s

digital transformation strategy.


Over the next few years ET was able to bring on several more facilities and begin investigating a true enterprise solution that met their data sharing needs and extended this success company-wide. During year four of site implementations, Energy Transfer began a two-year project, deploying dataPARC enterprise wide and enabling a data infrastructure representing more than 6 million tags at over 100 locations.
