SPILLS DIVISION

 

Pipeline Breaks

 

There are more than 760,000 kilometres of pipelines transporting oil and natural gas across Canada. Unfortunately, due to improper management, equipment failures, or human error, these pipelines occasionally break, resulting in spills both major and minor that require immediate response.

 

GFEI personnel are well-trained and experienced professionals who, in the event of a pipeline break, can immediately mobilize to site and handle all manner of mitigation, containment, and recovery whether the release affects land or water.
