Our Safety Commitment
Pipelines exist throughout the United States, transporting energy that consumers use for heating, cooking and much more. Through a relatively invisible, interconnected system of underground pipelines, natural gas is quietly, reliably and efficiently delivered throughout the country.
Our pipelines are regulated by the U. S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), which establishes rules and standards governing the design, construction, operation, safety and maintenance of pipelines.
To enhance the safety of our system and for the people around it, Energy Transfer monitors its pipeline operations 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We regularly patrol and maintain our right of way to allow for the easy identification of construction-related activities.
Energy Transfer utilizes an integrity management program to evaluate the condition of our pipeline. We employ specific measures to protect sections in zones known as high consequence areas, such as densely populated areas or places where people gather near the pipeline. The program includes an inspection of the pipeline using devices and methods to evaluate the external and internal condition of the pipe.
We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of safety and enhancing public safety and environmental protection through increased public awareness and knowledge. Maintaining a safe pipeline requires your participation as well. This information is provided to help you identify our pipelines and know how to recognize and respond to a pipeline emergency.
