To complete the twinning of the pipeline system, we will reactivate two pipeline segments that have been maintained in a deactivated state. The inspection and possible repair work of these pipeline segments are not included in the TMEP construction plans, however are required before connecting to the expanded pipeline system. 

One reactivation segment runs from our Darfield Pump Station, north of the District of Barriere to our future Black Pines Pump Station, north of the City of Kamloops. Prior to using this segment, In-Line Inspection tools will be sent through the pipe to determine the integrity of the pipeline. The inspection tools will identify any locations requiring further investigation. Any required repair work will then be completed. 

Inspection and repair work of these pipeline segments is authorized under the original OC-2 Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity for the existing pipeline.
