In a continued
effort to uphold operational integrity, Alliance Pipeline’s Geohazard
Management Program (GMP) proactively monitors any potential threats due to
water crossings or slope stability issues.
The risk-based integrity program identifies, assesses and mitigates sites
when necessary and consistently maintains the integrity of our system.
GMP has been effectively managing geohazards across the pipeline system since
2007. With approximately 200 annual
ground inspections and monthly pipeline flyovers, Alliance is able to maintain
a safe and secure line with few required repairs.
issues, the GMP protects the pipeline system by stabilizing at-risk water
crossings or mitigating landslide or other slope stability threats. For example, the bank of Windfall Creek near
Whitecourt AB, was stabilized by the GMP to prevent the encroachment of the
channel towards the pipeline.
Encroaching creek poses threat to Pipeline Bank stabilization installed to halt the creek encroachment
committed to upholding the highest standards of pipeline safety and
environmental stewardship. The GMP continues to go above and beyond industry
expectations through consistent inspection and monitoring of the Alliance
system. This program continues to be an essential part of maintaining the safety
of our pipeline system, as well as the communities in which we operate.
