How safe are pipelines?

According to U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) statistics, pipelines are the safest method for transporting energy. As this Project is designed, constructed and operated, Transco is committed to maintaining the highest standards of safety, utilizing construction and operational procedures that exceed already stringent industry regulations. Once operational, the new pipeline will be maintained and operated according to procedures outlined in Transco’s Pipeline Integrity Management Program. These procedures, many of which exceed minimum federal industry regulations, includes monitoring of the pipeline 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
