To support the complex operation of a large gas transmission system, information must move rapidly and accurately within NOVA and between NOVA and its business partners. With the implementation and integration of systems to perform pipeline control (SCADA), commodity management, electronic flow measurement (EFM), and electronic data interchange (EDI), this goal is being achieved.

This paper will follow a typical process from a customer's electronic request for gas, through the commodity management system for contractual and operational checks, to the issue of a change in flow, the control and measurement of that flow through the SC AD A and EFM components, back through the commodity management system, and through to the communication of the transported commodity totals back to the customer.
