CEPA launches The Regulatory Roadmap to improve Canadians’ literacy about how pipelines are regulated

The Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) is pleased to launch The Regulatory Roadmap, the latest component of its about pipelines program aimed at improving literacy regarding the transmission pipeline industry among Canadians. The Regulatory Roadmap is an interactive, multi-media program that sheds light on the complexities of pipeline regulation in Canada.

Pipeline regulators in Canada are in the midst of a series of important hearings and decision processes about applications to construct new pipelines or alter operations of existing pipelines – hearings that have raised a number of questions about how pipelines are regulated.

The Regulatory Roadmap takes a Q&A-style approach to address common questions Canadians have about the pipeline industry. The multi-media program combines text, animations, videos, and illustrations to explain the regulatory framework in Canada and how it protects the public and the environment.

The Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) represents Canada’s transmission pipeline companies who operate approximately 115,000 kilometres of pipelines in Canada. In 2012, these energy highways moved approximately 1.2 billion barrels of liquid petroleum products and 5.1 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. Our members transport 97 per cent of Canada’s daily natural gas and onshore crude oil from producing regions to markets throughout North America, which amounts to approximately 22% of Canada’s mercantile trade.
