How do we monitor pipelines?

TransCanada has a number of measures in place to monitor our pipelines:

  • We have a high-tech control centre based in Calgary that is staffed 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.
  • Our highly trained control centre employees operate pipeline systems, manage leak detection and shut down pipelines in the unlikely event of an emergency.
  • We also use aerial patrols and ground patrols to monitor our pipelines.
  • Landowners provide a key role in the overall monitoring of our pipelines, and complement the areas TransCanada is focused on.
