What to do in an emergency


Signs of a possible pipeline leak may include: pools of fuel‚ dirt or dust blowing in the air‚ hissing sounds‚ gas or petroleum odours‚ bubbles in standing water‚ dead or discoloured vegetation and ice on the ground.

If you notice any of these vicinity of a pipeline‚ treat it as an emergency.

In cases of severe damage, dial 999

In the event of an emergency
  • Remove all personnel from the vicinity of the incident
  • Extinguish any naked flames and shut down all working plant from the immediate area (remember‚ vapours will travel downwind)
  • Inform the emergency services
  • If known‚ call the pipeline operator. There will be a pipeline marker nearby with emergency contact information
  • Exclude all vehicles and personnel from the vicinity
  • Do not attempt to seal any leaks
  • Do not attempt to extinguish the flame if the leak has ignited
  • If damage to the pipeline has not caused a leak, do not try to hide it. Dents and gouges in a pipe may cause it to fail at a later time, with potentially catastrophic consequences.  Report all damage‚ however seemingly insignificant‚ to the pipeline operator
