CALGARY, April 13, 2015 /CNW/ - The National Energy Board (NEB) has launched an online interactive Pipeline Incident Map that offers Canadians the opportunity to view all pipeline incidents in Canada since 2008.
In launching the map, NEB Chair Peter Watson said, "This new and interactive tool offers Canadians the ability to learn more about pipeline incidents and the companies involved. It also demonstrates the NEB's increasing commitment to transparency."
The Pipeline Incident Map includes customizable filters and incident details including location, company, and volumes released to ensure that Canadians get the information they want, when and where they want it.
Updates to the map will occur quarterly, with the next update scheduled to take place in July 2015. Incident data may change over time. As incident investigations are completed or new information becomes available, records are updated and will be reflected on the online map.
The National Energy Board is an independent federal regulator of several parts of Canada's energy industry with the safety of Canadians and protection of the environment as its top priority. Its purpose is to regulate pipelines, energy development and trade in the Canadian public interest. For more information on the NEB and its mandate, please visit www.neb-one.gc.ca.
