For farmers and ranchers



 



Enbridge's pipeline system doesn't just run through communities—it connects them.

Pipelines are one of the safest, most efficient and most reliable way to transport energy resources. Pipelines play a vital role in our everyday lives, and are essential to our quality of life and economy—moving the products necessary for transportation, heating and cooling our homes, producing our food supply and manufacturing consumer products.

Enbridge operates thousands of miles of crude oil and natural gas pipelines throughout North America. Our top priority is operating our pipeline network safely. Our pipelines meet or exceed high government standards, and we work diligently—as we have for more than a half-century—to protect our pipeline network, because it means our neighbors and employees are protected as well.

As a farmer, rancher, landowner or tenant, you also make an important contribution to the team. It's important for all farmers and ranchers along our pipeline rights-of-way to:

Also, remember that pipeline damage—even if it does not immediately result in a visible leak—should be reported to Enbridge. Protective coating damage or even a small dent in the pipeline could cause a major problem in the future.

Keeping in touch with you is very important to us. That’s why we maintain contact with those neighbors who live near our pipelines and facilities—including farmers, ranchers or landowners, communities, Aboriginal and Native American groups, excavators and emergency responders—on an ongoing basis. It’s an opportunity to share important information, hear about your experiences, respond to your questions and update you on Enbridge’s safety, prevention and maintenance programs.
