The Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) Board of Directors made the difficult decision to cease CEPA’s operations, effective December 31, 2021, after 28 years due to recent changes to CEPA’s membership which makes it no longer feasible to carry on operations and effectively execute CEPA’s mandate in the future.
The decision was not taken lightly. As an association, we have focused on offering our members a unified voice and leading advocacy provincially and federally. This includes the work done on the Impact Assessment Act and numerous other policy initiatives over the years. We are proud of the impact CEPA has had on the Canadian energy policy landscape. In addition, through our industry collaboration, we established the Integrity First program to help pipeline companies share and implement leading practices, keeping pipelines safe and communities protected.
Our focus for the remainder of 2021 is to scale down our operations in an orderly fashion. This includes completing any outstanding work and honoring our financial obligations.
Chris Bloomer, CEPA President and CEO.
The Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) consists of transmission pipeline companies responsible for transporting the majority of Canada’s natural gas and crude oil to markets across North America. For almost three decades, CEPA members have been working together to safely and responsibly transport the natural gas and oil, and increasingly hydrogen, renewable natural gas, and biofuels, that Canada and the world need.
