The Canadian Energy Pipelines Association (CEPA) has just announced a new website ‘Pipelines 101’. The idea is to provide stakeholders with access to information about industry operations so that they can make ‘informed decisions.’ The site was also set up to address concerns regarding health, social, safety, security and environmental impacts of pipeline construction and operation.
Topics covered include pipelines’ role, types of pipelines and pipeline operators, safety; stakeholder engagement, policy and regulatory affairs and pipeline design, construction and operation. A glossary of pipeline terminology and links to other sources of information about pipelines are also included.
Pipelines 101 aims to offer ‘balanced, factual information on Canada’s pipelines’ noting in particular that ‘Pipelines are the safest and most efficient means of transporting crude oil and natural gas from producing fields to refineries and processing plants and of distributing petroleum products and natural gas to the consumer.’ The website attempts to redress ‘negative perceptions about potential health, social, safety, security and environmental impacts of pipeline construction and operation.’ Test drive Pipelines 101 at www.cepa.com/Pipeline101.aspx.
