What are pipelines?
Pipelines are underground systems for transporting liquid and gas products. They are the safest, most economical system of transportation for products vital to our way of life. Our country is crisscrossed with thousands of miles of underground pipelines delivering products such as oil, gasoline, home heating oil, natural gas, and industrial gases.
Pipeline operators are committed to the safe operation of pipelines for the public and our environment. Some precautionary methods that pipeline companies use to maintain an outstanding safety record include 24-hour surveillance, routine inspections, computer or instrument monitoring, corrosion protection, maintenance/testing programs, and employee training.
