CANADIAN PIPELINE COMPANIES FORM NEW ASSOCIATION

 CALGARY, Alberta, June 23 /PRNewswire/ - Seven of Canada's major oil and gas pipeline transmission companies have formed a new association to represent their common interests. The association is called the Canadian Energy Pipeline Association - CEPA.
 CEPA's seven founding members are Alberta Natural Gas Co., Foothills Pipe Lines, Interprovincial Pipe Line, NOVA Corporation of Alberta, TransCanada PipeLines, Trans Mountain Pipe Line and Westcoast Energy.
 The association's mandate is to promote a greater understanding among industry, government and the public of the important role played by Canada's pipeline companies in the Canadian economy. CEPA will represent all member companies in various forums.
 CEPA will focus its initial energies on establishing the day-to-day operations of the association. Initially, three employees will staff CEPA's office in Calgary. The association expects to appoint a full-time president this fall.
 High-priority issues for the association include safety, customer service, the environment, methods of regulation, international competitiveness, supply reliability and electronic data interchange.
 CEPA intends to establish strong working relationships with key energy industry organizations. The founding members welcome other pipeline companies to consider membership in CEPA.
 In 1992, the members of CEPA transported 4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and 600 million barrels of oil. Their combined assets total $15 billion. CEPA members transport more than 90 percent of the natural gas and crude oil produced in Canada. The value of the energy products transported to the United States by CEPA members was estimated at more than $10 billion in 1992, representing roughly 9 percent of all Canadian exports to the United States.
 In 1993, CEPA members plan to spend nearly $1.8 billion on pipeline system expansion, enhancement and maintenance. These investments will:
 -- Create more than 23,000 person-months of employment;
 -- Increase throughput capacity; and
 -- Protect public safety, worker health and the environment.
