Pipeline Public Awareness Programs

The Service Center provides comprehensive public awareness services to U.S. and Canadian pipeline companies for regulatory compliance. Since our pipeline awareness services were introduced in 1989, we have continuously enhanced our services with advancements, such as we pioneered digital mapping over 25 years ago, implemented parcel precision geocoding in 2005, and conducted more than 850 pipeline communication projects and more than 450 pipeline project audits.

The Service Center (TSC) and Above & Below Ground Consultants (A&BGC) have collaborated for over 22 years to provide oil and gas pipeline companies with cost-effective pipeline awareness campaigns that meet or exceed regulatory compliance, and adhere to American Petroleum institute’s (API) Recommended Practice (RP) 1162, as well as other regulations including CFR Parts 192 and 195. With respect to Canadian Projects, our public awareness program activities and efforts meet or exceed the requirements of the National Energy Board (NEB).

One very important element in our programs is the utilization of the most current and up to date Address Records available from the USPS (or Canada Post) which ensures the highest level of address deliverability that is possible when contacting the applicable Stakeholders.
