The Trans Mountain Pipeline was established in October 1953 to create a reliable energy supply for Canada and the United States. The initial capacity was 150,000 barrels per day with four pump stations along the line and a marine loading dock. Since 1953, the pipeline’s capacity has been increased a number of times by twinning parts of the line and adding associated facilities. Today, the Trans Mountain pipeline carries approximately 300,000 barrels per day and operates the Westridge Marine Terminal facility.

Pipeline safetyis our number one priority, and through the experience gained in almost 65 years of operation, Trans Mountain has developed a mature suite of programs to maximize pipeline safety. The most critical and responsible emergency preparedness strategy is spill prevention. However, in the case of a spill, we are prepared to respond quickly with detailedemergency proceduresand trained professionals. We are committed to transparency involvingspillsthat have occurred along its lines. Spills are reported and this information is publicly available.

与我们的工作人员是专用的和passionate. In some cases,multiple generationswithin a family have worked on the pipeline. Safety of the public, the environment and their colleagues is critically important for everyone who works at Trans Mountain.

We are also expanding our current 1,150-kilometre pipeline between Strathcona County, Alberta and Burnaby, BC. The expansion will create a twinned pipeline that will increase the nominal capacity of the system from approximately 300,000 barrels per day to 890,000 barrels per day.
