AbstractThe Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) measures approximately 580,000 km of pipeline in Canada with the longest crude oil pipeline in the world. In 2007, approximately 2.65 million barrels per day of crude oil and roughly 17.1 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day traveled through Canada's pipeline networks. There are several proposed new pipeline routes including the Yukon Alaska Highway Pipeline (YAHP) Project and the Mackenzie Valley natural gas Pipeline project (MVP) located in Canada's sub-Arctic region. This paper compares two examples of regional landslide susceptibility mapping studies along an existing pipeline corridor in southern British Columbia (BC) and a proposed pipeline (MVP) in Canada. Both methods are semi-quantitative and rely on expert judgment. Landslide inventory information overlain on the resulting landslide susceptibility maps indicates good correlation with potential for improvement. The paper also discusses the federal government's role in providing geoscience information for environmental assessments of the MVP and YAHP projects.
