Free E-Book: The 4 Step Guide to Effective Pipeline Water Crossing Management

Converge Crossing Manager by gdm lets you Identify all water crossings associated with your pipelines…not just those with a registered environment code

With spring now well underway, and with rain in the forecast, it’s time to once again start thinking about pipeline water crossings.

In recent years, there have been several high-profile pipeline releases that have impacted water bodies. These events can have a significant effect on public safety and the environment, as well as impacting a company’s image, and potentially coming along with considerable financial or regulatory implications. So, it’s important to have a plan in place to manage this critical infrastructure.

However, implementing a successful program can be a challenge. With over 314,000 pipeline water crossings in Western Canada, simply identifying your water crossing inventory may not be a simple task. And, once you have the list of crossings, how can you properly prioritize and manage it in the most efficient way?

In this e-book by GDM Pipelines and Explore, we outline a 4-step process for best practices that include identifying pipeline water crossings, designing an inspection program and ensuring you are using resources as efficiently as possible. We cover everything from creating a plan through to proactively monitoring changes and identifying areas for improvement.

If you operate pipelines in Western Canada and you don’t already have a water crossing program in place, you definitely don’t want to miss this!
