protect life and property
According to the National Transportation Safety Board, petroleum pipelines are the safest method of overland transportation. Pipeline safety is regulated by the United States Department of Transportation (DOT) and designated state agencies. Pipeline Safety regulations address the design, construction, operation, maintenance, and emergency response procedures in their effort to protect lives and the environment.
