Base Plan Map – High-Pressure Pipelines

Frequency of Publication
Daily and Monthly for Subscriptions

The pipeline base plan maps show the approximate location of licensed pipelines under AER jurisdiction. The maps are produced on an individual township basis; if a township is very congested, a larger scale is used (e.g., quarter-section). The base plan maps show the best pipeline location data available to the AER and identify the licence number of each pipeline. Under no circumstances should these maps be used for physically locating pipelines, as they only provide a general representation of the pipeline route. This product shows high-pressure pipelines only. From September 1, 2015, pipelines with “removal” status are included in the Base Plan Map.

Effective June 26, 2017, any new pipeline constructed will not be included as part of the base map. As a result, base plan maps will not show all pipelines regulated by the AER. To access a complete dataset of all AER-regulated pipelines, see the Enhanced Pipeline Graphics File.

As of June 26, 2017, the base plan map should only continue be used for Directive 056 application amendments to pipelines that existed prior to this date. Amendments to existing pipelines will continue to be incorporated into the base plan map until further notice.

The Pipeline Register File is also included in the compilation issue and the subscription.
