Maximize Profits with Flawlessly Measured Methane
With an industry average Lost and Unaccounted For (LAUF), the natural gas value chain leaves $3.5B on the table each year. LAUF is dominated by measurement errors, driving uncertainty around gas sales or whether your team is getting what you paid for.
Don’t wait on the promise of future technologies, C-SMART Analytics is proven SaaS measurement monitoring platform can cut your LAUF by up to 80%, today.

Analytics & Alerts
Unlock the Power of Your Diagnostics Data
C-SMART Analytics builds a digital twin of known behaviors, industry standards, specs, and measurement best practices alongside your actual as-built and configured measurement equipment. Our meteorologically based engine and analytics then sift your gas measurement streams for leading indicators and alert you to potential problems.
Automatically Detect Gas Measurement Errors
- USM Configuration & Calculations
- Communications Between the USM & Flow Computer
- Flow Computer Calculations (Flow, Energy, Super-Compressibility)
- Pressure & Temperature Transmitters
- Gas Chromatograph Auto-calibration
- Gas Chromatography Hold Mode
- Comms Between GC & FC
- + Many More Diagnostics Analyzed in Real Time
Automate, Analyse, Act
By aggregating all of your gas measurement diagnostics data in one place, C-SMART Analytics can rapidly analyze and pinpoint errors that would normally take your team weeks or months to resolve, including USM transducer and electronics failures, Control valve or ultrasonic noise issues, blockages in the meter tube, leaking isolation valves, and issues with gas chromatograph sampling and electronics. Users are instantly alerted by e-mail when a leading indicator is detected, such as increase in USM gain, and when errors exceed a specified threshold.
Dashboards & Reporting
See the Big Measurement Picture
C-SMART Analytics gives your entire team 24/7 access to your gas measurement operations with a cloud-based portal accessible from any device. At a glance, your online measurement dashboard shows KPIs for metering stations, error alert history, and events tracking results. Dashboards feature pre-configured charts and user-customizable charting. Easily search, filter, and export events and alerts to Excel.
Plus, monthly reporting provides a summary of performance and record of meter status.
Systems Integration & Security
Securely Connect the Field to the Back Office
C-SMART Analytics deploys cutting edge tech and hardened security controls to integrate your field data with our SaaS platform.
The C-Guard Gateway
Our C-Guard hardware provides a secure, intuitive, and web-based interface to access system-wide diagnostics data. C-Guard polls all end devices via Modbus and ethernet, so there is no connection between C-SMART Analytics™ and your control network. Ideal for organizations that do not have information technology infrastructure capable of polling the required diagnostics data. Alternatively, we can setup secure file transfer to synchronize your backend data system with C-SMART Analytics.
Robust Information Security
Backed by SOC 2 certification, C-SMART Analytics securely captures diagnostics data from your measurement equipment and stores it in the secure, cloud-based C-Smart database for no more than 1 year. Regular system analysis, as well as security and privacy risk assessments, are performed to ensure the integrity of the data we collect.
C-SMART Analytics partners with leading cloud providers that offer best-of-breed security management services and contracts with telecommunications providers to provide private access point names (APNs), which serve as the gateway between mobile and computer networks, to C-SMART Analytics sites and the virtual private networks between data centers.
Connect Alerts with Your Back Office Systems
to Drive Business Performance
C-SMART Analytics flips the old paradigm of scheduled inspections and time-consuming maintenance on its head by empowering your team to manage maintenance by exception. Staff can now be dispatched faster to the field to address equipment problems and resolve issues in a fraction of the time, saving you time and the costs associated with large measurement monitoring teams and expensive third-party consultants.
Accelerate business performance to the next level by integrating C-SMART Analytics alerts with your ERP and workforce automation system, enabling workflows to be immediately triggered, work orders approved, and field staff assigned to resolve gas measurement errors in record time. Our systems integration experts will work closely with your team to setup appropriate API endpoints and security controls tailored to your internal standards and workflow.
