Geez, houses washed away, major highways and roads washed out, huge steel bridges washed out, rail lines washed out, oil pipeline washed out of the ground. Yet not even one drop of oil escaped from that Trans Mountain pipeline that has been in service for 53 years carrying Alberta crude oil to the B.C. lower mainland.
Each weld joining the pieces of pipe together in that pipeline had three welding passes by three different welders making them super strong joints. The new approved TC line that will run alongside the existing line should be even safer. Two train derailments in the last few weeks in Alberta – not carrying oil thank goodness!
Hello all you anti pipeliners and David Suzuki types!
