The Pipeline Committee is made up of companies that transport hydrocarbons by underground pipeline in Québec. Its mission is to convey a common prevention message to ensure the safety of the public and the integrity of its members’ pipeline systems.
The companies target the same clientele: municipalities, excavators, schools, associations, etc. By joining forces, they can reach this clientele more effectively and disseminate their safety and prevention message more widely.
The Pipeline Committee began its awareness efforts more than 12 years ago and continued them in 2012 with the following initiatives:
