Kinder Morgan Canada Taps Matrikon Alarm Manager for More Consistent, Efficient Pipeline Management


With Alarm Manager, Kinder Morgan Canada will be able to identify bad actors and ensure all alarms are configured in a way that maximizes safety and efficiency. By reducing alarms, the solution helps operators notice the most important ones, thereby decreasing operator error.

Every day, Kinder Morgan Canada transports over 680,000 barrels of petroleum products across five pipelines to Canada, the U.S. and offshore. Operating in both countries, Kinder Morgan Canada must assure compliance with applicable regulations, and where practical, tends to follow what it considers the higher set of standards.

“We want to take the best of breed, and in many cases, apply standards even if they are not mandated by one country or another,” said Ron Threlfall, Manager, Simulation and SCADA Control.
