Except in the event of soil disturbance within a ROW pipeline or within 5m of an oil pipeline, if there is no ROW, we are not authorized to authorize on behalf of the licensee for pipeline-related work, nor do we have the option to extend existing agreements with the licensee. We also do not grant approval for surface work around an oil pipeline where there are no soil disturbances, such as crossings or interventions on an oil pipeline. Yellowhead Gas Co-op is committed to the safety of all people who live or work near our pipelines and related facilities. Some activities may pose a risk to an oil pipeline and its environment. Please note that only minor intangible adaptations of model agreements can be accepted. Crossing agreements help ensure that pipeline operators are informed of upcoming crossings or excavations to prevent accidents. Unauthorized crossings or searches pose a serious threat to the safety of workers and the pipeline, as well as to the safety of others in the vicinity. In cases where an agreement is required, Gassco concludes, on behalf of the owners of the pipelines concerned, crossing agreements and approximation agreements on the basis of the standard applicable to these agreements, drawn up by the Association of Norwegian Oil and Gas Industries (Norsk olje og gass). To ensure that Yellowhead Gas co-op pipelines and facilities remain in service safely, Yellowhead Gas Co-op`s written consent must be obtained in the following situations: Pipeline search opportunities include, in addition to contacting Alberta One-Call: Before starting work on pipelines and pipelines, it is important to obtain all necessary approvals to ensure that workers, the public and the environment are safe. The rules and requirements that must be met when processing pipelines are found in the Pipeline Act (sections 32, 35 and 42) and in the pipeline rules (part 5, soil disruption). Below is a brief overview of what to do and who you can talk to when planning surface works or soil disturbances around pipelines and pipelines. This information applies to the pipelines we regulate. If planning and before any of the work or activities listed above can begin, a request for approval to Yellowhead Gas Co-op, can you email your requests to thirdpartycrossings@yellowheadgas.com If the licensee does not respond, contact us for permission to conduct a soil disturbance in the ROW pipeline, or within 5 meters of the pipeline if there is no ROW.

Send us an email to @email with "Ground disturbance request inside pipeline ROW" in the "Subject" field of the email. The controlled area of pipeline A is a 30-metre-wide strip on either side of the pipeline, measured from the center of the extreme pipeline. If the ROW extends more than 30 m from the centre of the extreme pipeline, the entire ROW is the controlled area. Alliance Pipeline is federally regulated by the National Energy Board (NEB) in Canada. The National Energy Board Act and its regulations, the National Energy Board Pipeline Damage Prevention Regulations, Authorization and Obligations, require a crossover agreement for anyone who proposes to cause soil disturbance in the prescribed area, which extends vertically 30 metres on both sides of the pipe median line; Build a facility on, on, along, along or under an oil pipeline; or cross a pipe with a vehicle or mobile equipment.
