At Canadian Natural we ensure that asset integrity requirements are fulfilled at all stages of the pressure equipment lifecycle. To safely maintain one of the largest inventories of upstream process equipment in Canada and international operations, we are committed to ensure risk-based evaluations are completed and that appropriate procedures for mitigation are in place.
The principal objective of our Asset Integrity Management Systems is to prevent injury to people arising from the operation of pressure equipment and to meet or exceed the requirements of the applicable Regulators. A secondary objective is to reduce the risk of property damage due to pressure equipment failure.
Our infrastructure integrity programs are continuously enhanced, optimized and maintained in all our operations. Our operating procedures, technical specifications and policies are critical to ensure we deliver effective and efficient operations that are safe for our people and the environment.
Our Asset Integrity Management System is based on the principles found in the Corporate Statement on Asset Integrity Management - integral to the way in which Canadian Natural conducts its business.
