Pipeline Operations

Operators adhere to federal and state regulations when designing, building and operating natural gas and oil pipelines. In many cases, operators go above and beyond minimum requirements through industry standards and best practices to operate safely and efficiently while protecting people and the environment.

Operators continuously monitor pipelines from control rooms.

Pipelines are constructed with the highest quality materials in accordance with industry standards and constructed to minimize environmental disruptions to the highest extent possible.

Operators comply with federal and state regulations throughout the life cycle of a pipeline, from initial construction all the way to decommissioning.

Pipelines are operated 24/7/365 from central control rooms by highly qualified and regularly trained professionals.
