1. Every five seconds more than 20,000 sensors along the Keystone XL Pipeline relay information via satellite to the TransCanada Control Centre (TCC).

  2. At TransCanada, safety is a shared value. TransCanada spends hundreds of millions of dollars every year on pipeline integrity and safety. Our safety programs and processes are designed to protect workers, the community and the environment.

    One of those safety processes is called in-line inspection. With in-line inspection, we send a set of high-definition sensors into our pipeline. The sensors check the condition of the pipe and detect any potential weaknesses, such as corrosion, before they become safety hazards.

    The in-line inspection process is an extremely important part of our safety program.

  3. TransCanada Corporation President & CEO Russ Girling highlights the company's commitment to safe pipelines.

    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 and 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.

    TransCanada has been safely delivering critical energy products across the continent for more than 60 years and has a solid track record of responsible development, reliable operations, and treating our customers, partners and stakeholders with integrity and respect.

    We operate one of the largest natural gas transmission networks in North America — 68,500 kilometres (km) (42,500 miles) — tapping into virtually every major gas supply basin and transporting approximately 20 per cent of the continent's daily natural gas supply. We are North America's third largest provider of natural gas storage and related services with more than 400 billion cubic feet (Bcf) of storage capacity.

    We own or have interests in 21 power facilities with the capacity to generate 11,800 megawatts (MW) of electricity, enough to power nearly 12 million homes. One-third of the power we produce comes from emission-less sources including nuclear, hydro, wind and solar.
