Husky continues to enhance its Pipeline Integrity Management Program, with a focus on abandoning pipelines no longer in use and on addressing the recommendations from baseline assessments.
The Company monitors and manages its 30,000 kilometres of pipelines from the design and construction phase through to operation, maintenance and ultimate suspension and abandonment.
The program, with the goal of improved integrity and a reduced incident rate, includes inspections, corrosion prevention, leak detection and risk assessments with accelerated levels of response. Those range from a quantitative risk assessment on an as-needed basis to a baseline assessment conducted every five years, to an annual consequence-based assessment.
In 2014, Husky completed baseline assessments for all its pipelines.
Husky’s pipeline incident rate in 2014 was 2.98 incidents per 1,000 kilometres. The overall trend is towards a reduced incident rate.
