Operating & Maintaining our Pipeline
in pipelines, and act quickly in
case of incident
Pipeline safety is our number one priority, and through the experience gained in 60 years of operation, Trans Mountain has developed a mature suite of programs to maximize the safety of the pipeline.
Pipeline safety practices that focus on preventing pipeline failures and minimizing their impact, are all part of what is known as a Pipeline Integrity Management program. This program identifies all of the hazards that have the potential to affect the safety of the pipeline system and ensures that control measures are implemented to prevent or mitigate the occurrence and potential impact of each hazard.
Control Centre Operations staff operate and monitor the pipeline 24/7, 365 days a year. Pressure and flow in the pipeline are controlled through valves, pumps and tanks at pump stations and terminals. Whenever conditions change unexpectedly, operators are trained to investigate and respond immediately.
