Safety has always been TransCanada’s top priority and we have an industry-leading safety record to prove it.
Our pipeline incident rate is better than the average in Canada, the United States and Europe and we have more than 60 years of experience building and operating safe and reliable natural gas and crude oil pipelines across North America.
In 2012 alone, TransCanada invested more than $1 billion in pipeline integrity and proactive inspection and maintenance programs to protect our pipelines and energy facilities and we plan to spend an additional $1.2 billion this year.
No one has a stronger interest than TransCanada does in making sure that our pipelines are designed, constructed and operated safely and reliably. The public and our shareholders expect it because it not only makes good business sense, it is common sense.
Recently, TransCanada’s President & CEO Russ Girling visited the company’s pipeline control centre to share his thoughts about TransCanada’s safety culture and to explain how the extraordinary safety measures and latest technology to be used on Keystone XL will make it one of the safest pipelines ever built.
