Pipeline Safety Forum 2015 – Presentations and Questions and Answers

Safety Forum 2015

The Pipeline Safety Forum held on June 2nd and 3rd, 2015, marked the conclusion of the National Energy Board’s first cross-Canada public engagement initiative that began in November 2014. The Forum brought together key subject matter experts from across the country as attendees and as presenters. The discussions focused on addressing specific issues to improve the safety of regulated facilities.

The National Energy Board will produce a report on both the engagement initiative and the Forum by early 2016.

The speakers responded to questions posed by the audience either verbally, or via an interactive web site that could be accessed by participants during the Forum. Some of the questions for the speakers were posted on the interactive website, but were not answered at the Forum due to time constraints.
