CALGARY - CSA Standards has published what it says is an innovative approach to protecting land-based oil and gas pipelines from sabotage and other security threats.
The CSA says it has developed a standard that pipeline owners and operators can use to identify and reduce threats to their assets.
Besides pipelines, the CSA's standards will apply to various storage and processing infrastructure used by the oil and gas industry.
The new CSA standard follows six bombings of EnCana pipelines in Western Canada over the past 13 months.
So far, the bombing cases haven't been solved.
The British Columbian government issued new guidelines in September but the Canadian Standards Association has developed a national standard.

Organizations: Canadian Standards Association, CSA Standards, EnCana
