The safest and most efficient way to transport oil and natural gas across our nation is through a system of underground pipelines. Unseen and often overlooked, pipelines are an integral part of our country’s energy infrastructure. There are more than 2.2 million miles of oil and natural gas pipelines in the United States.
We work hard to prevent a pipeline incident, but in the unlikely event of a pipeline emergency, we are prepared to quickly respond.
