The National Energy Board (NEB) is launching a one year pilot programme to make the CSA Z662 – Oil and Gas Pipeline Systems (CSA Z662) safety standard available online to the public free of charge.

This information was previously only available to the public through a paid online subscription, the NEB’s onsite library or through interlibrary loans across Canada.

CSA Z662 is incorporated by reference in the NEB onshore pipeline regulations (OPR), making it a regulation that applies to NEB-regulated oil and gas pipelines. It is also included in the NEB’s Filing Manual so companies must follow CSA Z662 when they submit an application for a new project.

CSA Z662 is comprised of prescriptive and performance-based requirements. It covers the technical aspects of design, construction, operation, maintenance, deactivation and abandonment of oil and gas industry pipeline systems. CSA Z662 is continually reviewed and updated to incorporate lessons learnt, technological advancements and best practices.

The pilot runs until March 2018 with the NEB covering the cost so that Canadians can have full, digital access.
