On-site visits help determine the most efficient approach that will reduce our clients’ assets downtime and project costs, while verifying there are no unidentified concerns, variables, or considerations that have not previously been identified. On-site visits may include the following:
• Assess possible dig points and/or riser locations.
• Determine the APTU (Advanced Pulling Technology Unit) position.
• Finalize the correct sizing and pull force rated unit.
• Establish flange size and type for both ends.
• Ascertain the compressor sizing and confirm if it is equipped with air cooler.
• Verify compressor hose fitting compatibility.
The Detailed Checklist provides a clearly defined overview of the scope of work, identifying all project considerations and safety requirements. This checklist will be reviewed at the Pre-job Team Meeting.
The Pre-job Team Meeting will be scheduled either in-person or remotely, prior to the commencement of the project. The entire team should be present inclusive of the pipeline owner(s) and/or oil and gas representative(s), engineers, mechanical contractors, digging crew, support crew, compressed air suppliers and any other associated pipeline staff. This ensures that everyone is aligned, educated, and informed on the project scope and specifications, and all necessary equipment and tools are ordered. This is an essential step in identifying any safety considerations and ultimately ensures that the project execution is seamless. Additionally, it prevents errors and delays and raises any environmental concerns.
Integrity is at the foundation of Canline’s values. This is backed by our extensive knowledge, well-established processes and systems, and advanced technology integration. We prioritize reducing our clients’ assets downtime, maximizing their cost savings, while providing solutions that are safer for the environment and surrounding communities to help reduce the social impact.
Canline offers comprehensive project management and coordination capabilities for clients that require this expertise.
Our unwavering commitment to safety is firmly established with our clients during our Pre-Job Coordination. This upfront due diligence contributes to asset integrity and risk mitigation. Canline complies with all applicable legislation, regulations, and additional requirements we have identified in our own safety procedures. Our well-established safety objectives, targets, and measures, serve as the basis for continual improvement.
Quality control is imperative in Canline’s business operations. Consistently going above and beyond industry standard, our processes and systems ensure every detail is taken care of and well documented. This is evidenced in our comprehensive Quality Control Package all clients receive at turnover.

We embrace every available opportunity to prevent pollution, reduce waste and minimize the consumption of resources. Our partnerships with external industry organizations are extremely important for the supply of all required HSE (Health Safety and Environment) data and information.
