How safe are tankers?


In the offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, Basin Wide Transportation and Transshipment System (BWTTS) was developed by offshore producers to schedule and transport their crude oil from offshore to Newfoundland Transshipment Limited facilities or other discharge ports.

On Canada’s west coast, tankers are under the command of an experienced local pilot who knows local waters.

All tankers operating in Canadian waters must be double-hulled to reduce the potential for an oil spill.
