Our Origins story

Deeply rooted in Pipeline SCADA

NuGen Automation LLC was founded by Son Tran in 2010 at the request of Boardwalk Pipeline, Enterprise Products, Royal Dutch Shell, and other Oil & Gas operators who sought continued innovation and support for their large-scale SCADA systems.

Our experience led us to recognize that smaller Oil & Gas pipeline operators are rarely equipped with the staff or expertise necessary to support their SCADA systems but must often pay for services that are designed for larger corporations with equally-sized SCADA system workloads.

OUR Strategic Vision

Pipeline automation for every operator

Building on our knowledge of Enterprise SCADA Systems, we formed a business model that offered smaller pipeline operators the same experience and support as their larger counterparts without the high cost of ownership, tailoring our services to fit our customers’ unique parameters.

We accomplish this by approaching SCADA and pipeline operation with a vertical model that integrates IT, compliance, leak detection, software development, and support into a total solution.

What started as two SCADA experts has grown into hundreds of employees with expertise in IT Management, SCADA Integration, Leak Detection, Safety and Compliance, 3rd-Party Control Rooms, and
GIS applications.

With the vision of providing solutions that integrate advanced technology and propel our customers’ programs to the leading edge of their fields, our mission is simple:
