A Safe and Reliable Pipeline
The safe, reliable construction and operation of KXL is a top priority through and will be achieved though enhanced standards, powerful technology and independent reviews. KXL will use corrosion-resistant pipe and construction welds reviewed by third parties and audited by the U.S. Government. Modern technology will be built into the pipe to continuously monitor product flow 24 hours a day, 365 a year. Regular aerial and land inspections will occur to supplement digital monitoring, and emergency protocols will be set up and routinely practiced.
TransCanada Corporation brings vast experience and a solid safety record to the KXL project. Currently maintaining more than 56,100 miles of underground pipeline in North America, their cutting-edge technology would detect the slightest leak so that it can be stopped remotely, and the emergency response plan activated. This plan allows Keystone to address the most unlikely emergencies with swiftness and accuracy. With safety and environmental protection as core values, TransCanada will be responsible to remediate any leak impact and pay for any damages.
