Pipelines and Terminals

From refinery to distribution, pipelines and terminals serve as the delivery hub of the energy sector, transporting crude oil, natural gas and petroleum products safely and economically. For more than 50 years, Western Canadian pipeline builders have relied on Spartan’s expertise to address accurate measurement, leak detection, machinery health and safety challenges.

According to the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) 2011 statistics, over 110,000 kilometers of transmission pipelines, operated by its members, distribute 97% of Canada`s daily natural gas and onshore crude oil from producing regions to market - 1.2 billion barrels of liquid petroleum products and 5.3 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
