This is the third post in our four part #PipelinesExposed video series.
Over the last few weeks on our blog (and YouTube), Brenda has answered environmental questions sent to us via Facebook. She’s responded to concerns on a range of topics from non-renewable energy to emergencies in remote areas.
“How are you 100 percent positive there will never be a leak or burst?” – Nadine M.
Between 2002 and 2013, 99.9995 per cent of liquid product transported by pipelines was moved safely. Find out what the industry is doing to make that number 100 per cent by driving towards zero incidents through collaboration and continuous improvement.
“Is this pipeline being built with swaying joints to prevent breakage should an earthquake occur?” – Tony R. (Cambridge, Ont.)
“We must build anew and replace all of the aging infrastructure so it does not leak.” – Bruce F. (London, Ont.)
Watch how in-line inspection tools help companies know if a pipeline needs to be repaired or replaced.

The Canadian Energy Pipeline Association represents Canada’s transmission pipeline companies who operate approximately 115,000 kilometres of pipelines in Canada. In 2013, these energy highways moved approximately 1.2 billion barrels of liquid petroleum products and 5.3 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.
