This study was initiated in 1988 to evaluate the effects of pipeline construction on soil strengths of various soils in the province of Alberta. The pipelines were scattered throughout Alberta on a number of different soils and were constructed using various techniques. At each of the fifteen...
Employee Attitudes on Corporate Social Responsibility at the Frontline Level of an Energy Transportation CompanyDownload
Corporate social responsibility (CSR) reflects the commitment businesses voluntarily undertake to integrate ethical behaviors and societal matters within their operating contexts, decision-making processes, strategies and corporate values while simultaneously maximizing economic objectives. As...
Footprints: The Evolution of Land Conservation and Reclamation in Alberta is the story of how Alberta’s land conservation and reclamation program came into being and how it has progressed over the past half century. Our goal is to provide an objective description for current and future...
As the demand for oil and gas resources increases pipeline construction pushes further into the Arctic and sub-Arctic regions. Consequently, these buried pipelines suffer much harsh environmental and complex loading conditions. Moreover, to increase the transporting efficiency, larger size pipes...
IMPACTS OF DISTANCE TO PIPELINE DISTURBANCE ON MIXED GRASS PRAIRIE AND HALIMOLOBOS VIRGATA (NUTT.) O.E. SCHULZ (SLENDER MOUSE EAR CRESS)Download
Halimolobos virgata (slender mouse ear cress) is an at risk plant species in the Dry Mixed Grass Subregion of Southern Alberta. Little is known about effects of disturbances such as pipelines on Halimolobos virgata and its habitat. Environment Canada recommends a non species specific set back of...
This literate review evaluates the information available on the effects of overstripping topsoil during pipeline construction on native rangelands in southeastern Alberta. The effects on soil quality and handling of Chernozemic and Solonetzic soils are presented in detail as these are the...
Impacts of a six year old pipeline right of way on Halimolobos virgata (Nutt.) O.E. Schulz (slender mouse ear cress), native dry mixedgrass prairie uplands, and wetlandsDownload
Reclamation of native prairie ecosystems is of growing importance as they continue to be impacted by anthropogenic disturbances. Since European settlement, Alberta grasslands have declined by 61 %. Grasslands are agriculturally important, act as a carbon sink, and many species depend upon them....
Integrity Assessment of Dents in Pipelines using Finite Element Analysis and Artificial Neural NetworksDownload
Dents are common occurrences along oil and gas pipelines and can be formed due to pipe contact with external forces such as rocks or construction equipment. There are many factors that contribute to the level of integrity concern of a dent including its shape, size, location on the pipe, and...
Slurry pipelines are widely utilized in most mining operations to transport the raw materials and the tailings. These pipelines typically suffer from high wear rates. For example, in Canada’s oil sands industry, pipeline wear rates of 1 cm/yr are considered representative. To generate and measure...
Coating disbondment on pipelines is a common phenomenon that leads to exposure of the pipeline metal to the surrounding soil and ground water solutions. The exposure of pipelines to those corrosive environments is associated with development of corrosion and Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) on the...
