The Security Management for Petroleum & Natural Gas Industry Systems standard will assist in safeguarding pipelines that span the Canada-U.S. border.

New Standard Helps to Protect Canadian Pipelines

CSA Standards announced the standard on Nov. 25 and will offer a one-day seminar about it Feb. 9 in Calgary.

A one-day course Feb. 9, 2010, in Calgary will give Canadian pipeline operators a first look at a new standard intended to help them protect land-based pipeline systems and assets against vandalism, sabotage, and other security threats. CSA Standards announced the new standard, entitled Security Management for Petroleum & Natural Gas Industry Systems, on Nov. 25, saying it will assist in safeguarding pipelines that span the Canada-U.S. border, with more than 540,000 kilometers of pipelines in Canada and nearly 805,000 kilometers of pipelines in the United States.

"Canadians recognize the importance of a safe, secure and reliable energy supply and that any prolonged interruption in the supply of energy due to sabotage or vandalism, would undoubtedly harm the economy. Even more important is protecting the wellbeing of workers, families and surrounding communities. With six bomb attacks on pipelines in B.C. occurring last year alone, vandalism, sabotage and attacks on oil and gas assets here in Canada have illustrated the need for a national security management standard," the organization stated in its announcement. The standard

"The CSA Security Management for Petroleum and Natural Gas Industry Systems standard is designed to help ensure the safety and security of Canadians," says Suzanne Kiraly, president of CSA Standards. "Together with the National Energy Board and leading security experts, CSA developed this innovative standard to help mitigate threats to the energy supply systems. Organizations that implement this standard can confidently say that they are on the forefront of workplace health, safety, and security management."

CSA Standards' training seminars will acquaint stakeholders with the standard and the range of security and risk management considerations involved. For information, visit https://learningcentre.csa.ca.
