Western Canada Pipeline Permits – permit report

About Pipeline Permits

Pipeline permits include gathering or transport pipelines of a liquid, gas or oil through a system of pipes.  In both the United States and Canada, more crude oil, petroleum products, and natural gas are transported in pipelines than by all other modes combined. In the U.S., 70% of crude oil and petroleum products are shipped by pipeline. 23% of oil shipments are on tankers and barges over water. Trucking accounts for 4% of shipments, and rail 3%. In Canada, it’s even more lopsided. Almost all (97%) of natural gas and petroleum products are transported by pipelines. Truck trailers are increasingly used for short distance delivery to fill jobs and projects as the energy continues to expand in Canada and the US.
