Creating our energy future
Pipelines are the safest and most environmentally responsible way to transport natural gas and petroleum products over long distances. Find out more at www.tcenergy.com/safety.
Pipelines are everywhere! North America has millions of miles of pipelines that deliver critical supplies of natural gas and petroleum products that we rely on every day and sustain our high quality of life. Most of these pipelines operate underground, 24/7, quietly delivering a vital service to people across the continent.
TC Energy has a remarkable energy network that spans three countries and delivers 25 per cent of all natural gas used in North America every day. We deliver Canadian oil from Alberta to the U.S. Midwest and Gulf Coast. And, in Mexico, our pipelines are located in key regions, helping the country with its significant transition from the use of fuel oil and diesel to using natural gas for power generation.
Underground, between mountains and even under water, our pipelines operate safely and reliably, quietly connecting our continent over tens of thousands of kilometres.

Yes, absolutely. Pipelines are the safest and most environmentally responsible method of transporting large volumes of petroleum products and natural gas over long distances.
We believe no pipeline incident is acceptable and all incidents can be prevented. We take our responsibility of safety and reliability very seriously. We:
Yes, we can and we work at doing so every day. TC Energy employs the most sophisticated and advanced data analytics and risk evaluation methodologies in the industry. We have a long history of pioneering, deploy important pipeline technology and develop enhanced risk evaluation methodologies that are adopted by regulators, standards committees and other operators. Such as:
99.999% of pipeline deliveries completed safely each year
4.5 times safer than rail
500 people dedicated to pipeline integrity
Over $1 billion spent in pipeline integrity yearly
