CEPA Members

Working together for a better energy future.

CEPA members transport the majority of the natural gas and crude oil produced in Canada to markets across North America. Together, we are committed to delivering this energy in a safe and responsible manner.

Through CEPA, members work together on continuous improvement in key areas, such as safety and environmental protection, that will lead us to reaching our goal of zero incidents.

The key is working together. Being able to leverage the combined knowledge and expertise of Canada’s leading transmission pipeline companies means we can get to zero faster.


Member benefits

CEPA members are part of an association that is leading the way in the safe and environmentally responsible delivery of oil and gas.

CEPA is a non-profit organization whose membership is comprised of some of Canada’s leading owners and operators of transmission pipelines, and those with an interest in the energy pipeline business. Our members transport the majority of the natural gas and crude oil produced in Canada to markets across North America.

As an industry association, CEPA delivers valuable benefits to members and the public.

  • Provides coordination and leadership on key sector issues, including safety, environmental, regulatory and financial initiatives
  • Acts as a trusted source of information for the public, media, and pipeline industry regarding pipeline issues
  • Acts on behalf of our membership to advance policy positions to government and other key stakeholders

Mutual Emergency Assistance Agreement

In 2013, CEPA members committed to a Mutual Emergency Assistance Agreement (MEAA). This means at any time; any member can request the assistance of other CEPA members in an emergency. Members are willing to make their knowledge, expertise and resources available to one another because one member’s incident is every member’s incident.

MEAA considerably increases the resources available to any member in an emergency. Members can request assistance from any member in the form of personnel, equipment, tools or specialized response advice, depending on the situation. CEPA members have access to a designated representative for each member along with a full equipment list of everything that is available.
