TAP Gold

Our Valued Partnerships

  • Petrotranz Inc. is pleased to announce that Schneider-Electric is the first pipeline and terminal management system vendor partner to be recognized as a Gold Partner for their integration efforts with the Petrotranz Data Exchange ("PDX"). Gold status is currently the second highest level of recognition that can be awarded to Petrotranz technology partners for their integration accomplishments.

    Petrotranz and Schneider-Electric have been working closely on a number of key integration projects over the past few years. This includes the ability to meet the Alberta Crown requirements for publishing key volumetric and financial reports. Schneider-Electric's Polaris system is currently being leveraged by a number of western Canadian feeder pipeline operators. PDX is the first transformational system for the energy industry that allows disparate systems to communicate with each other and the first system that provides a common language and secure hub for transacting information between all energy stakeholders.

    "We at Petrotranz are truly excited to have the opportunity to recognize Schneider-Electric as another member of the growing Petrotranz Technology Adoption Program," says Dallas Smith, Chief Operating Officer - Petrotranz Inc., "together we have been able to help our mutual customers enhance their overall customer offering as well as provide substantial efficiency gains at a crucial time for our industry."
    Electronic standardization of key documents such as Final Shipper Balance Reports, Producer Activity Reports, Equalization Invoices and Tariff Invoices to name a few, has provided security to industry stakeholders so that for the first time, they can integrate to consume this data in one consistent format

Reference Data


  • When our users requested speed enhancements and the ability for customization of their grid views, we created Smart Grids, and initially rolled version one out to the Operator portal. We've received positive feedback since it's release in Winter 2016, and have created version two, due out in our Summer 2017 release!

    Not only are the Facility and Shipper portal gaining Smart Grids, but we are rolling out a faster and sleeker version to all! We can't wait to hear how much you love the ability to do advanced searches using complex search criteria and the ability to customize your grid view to how you'd like to view your information. The best part is you now have the ability to save your searches and customized views into your Smart Folders for easy access to what you want and how you want month after month!

Kids Cancer Care

In Our Community

  • One of the most rewarding aspects to life is when you have the chance to give back to the community. We recently had the chance by making a donation to Kid's Cancer Care Foundation. While it was a small act of donating money, it helped one courageous young girl achieve something far greater! In raising money and shaving her head in support of her brother, she managed to garner national and international attention, bringing much needed support to such an important cause. We are very proud not only as a corporation but as individuals to have helped support her in her selfless act. This is a cause that we will continue to support going forward as it touches so many lives.
