Shut it Down: TransCanada Valve Isolation Sequences

Note: Both of the document links posted here are external links to a NoBlogs site where files are hosted with other information. That site ( states that each file was generated from an acquired internal/uncensored hard copy and have had metadata removed. Other link sources and warning are posted through the website. It’s good to remember that most sites [like the NEB] attempt to capture IP addresses & metadata. Using public computers, tor, tails or other proxies can help with this IF you use them properly. The Seeding Resistance site recommends using Tor and Tails. While all the files stored on this site have been cleaned of metadata downloading and taking ownership of them may record new data which can identify your system. This matters if you are reposting the file in a way that aggravates the powers that be. As always, proceed and play at your own risk!


Finding local points of resistance to align ourselves with broader struggles is essential to solidarity and can have direct impacts on industrial project disruptions.

Here in so-called southern ontario we’ve seen numerous solidarity actions with the Wet’suwet’en people out west who continue to resist pipelines through their unceded territory; highway shut downs, informational sessions, disruptions, targetted vandalism, and occupations.

Not too long ago we saw a group of individuals occupy and attempt to force a shut down at a TransCanada compressor station within the occupied territories of the Haudensaunee, Anishinabeg and Chonnonton [Neutral] peoples in so-called Hamilton, ON. TransCanada was willing to endanger their infrastructure for the continuation of profit and refused to follow their own internal and federally mandated shutdown procedures. On the day of, those on site were unsuccessful in their original objective because they lacked internal information on valve operation procedures.

Well; no more.

We present you with this fine gem; a collection of private internal TransCanada documents that outline the proper valve isolation and shutoff procedures for various compressor stations on their mainline throughout the region. The website also contains a handy list of TransCanada & Coastal GasLink contractors.

Have fun, play safe, and shut it all down!
