Trans Mountain announced on Sunday that it had resumed service of its disrupted pipeline system following landslides and widespread flooding caused by typhoons that hit southern British Columbia.
The Trans Mountain Pipeline System is back to “safe” service after all assessments, repairs and construction of protected land have been completed, the company said in a press release.
The work is needed after flooding outdoor sections of a 1,150-kilometer network carrying 300,000 barrels of petroleum products per day from Alberta to British Columbia.
Upon return to service it “monitors the route from the ground, from the air and through technologies operated by its control center,” the Crown Corporation said.
Additional work will be carried out in the coming weeks, especially “changing the armor of the banks, the addition of plant cover or sections of the pipeline”.
The British Colombian government has asked people to limit gas visits to the gas station to a maximum of 30 liters until December 14. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
Trans Mountain is the only pipeline transporting crude oil and refined products.
