The pipeline industry is one of the most regulated industries in Canada and its records are 99.99% safe, yet this is an industry that is filled with myths and misinterpretations. This session will present the top 10 myths about pipelines and they will be explained by a pipeline engineer. Attendees will learn, for example, that pipelines are not abandoned and forgotten when they go out of service, and that they are are not operated at dangerously high pressures to make more money and push more product. The presentation will include a discussion with the audience about their own personal myths about pipelines.
This session will be held over Teams.
