Pipelines are the safest and most reliable way to transport fuels and energy products across great distances, whether it’s natural gas, crude oil, liquid petroleum, chemical products, or anything else. Since pipelines are primarily underground, they tend to stay far enough away from public contact and accidental damage to stay safe. However, increases in energy consumption and population growth near pipelines do present the potential for a pipeline incident.
To meet the pipeline industry’s goal of incident-free operation, pipeline operators have been investing insubstantial resources, both human and financial, to protect the people, property, and environments near pipelines. Damage prevention measures include routine inspection and maintenance, corrosion protection, continuous monitoring and control technologies, public awareness programs and integrity management, and emergency response plans. While pipelines are generally the safest method of transporting hazardous chemicals, they are not fail-safe. Pipeline product releases, whether in the form of a slow leak or violent rupture, are a risk in any community.

Whether you’re constructing, cleaning, or repairing a pipeline, or if you’re just doing basic maintenance or inspection, you can count on our teams to keep your staff safe and get them out if something were to happen.
