Each year, our trained technicians and contractors physically inspect a portion of our 21,000 km of gas pipelines. This activity is an important part of our gas pipeline monitoring to ensure safe, reliable, and consistent gas service. However, pipeline surveys require our technicians and contractors to walk on and near customer properties and traverse rough terrain. To help with these challenges, we are testing a remotely piloted aircraft system (RPAS) for pipeline monitoring.
Testing may take place throughout AUI’s service territory. If you are an Apex customer within 100 metres of our testing area, you will receive a written notification from the company performing the testing outlining details of their activities. Signage will be posted. However, if you have any questions or concerns about the aerial activities, please contact Apex at 1-866-222-2067.
