pipelines: What you need to know

Why we need them

A complex underground network of pipelines delivers energy across the country safely and reliably, 24/7/365.

Pipelines do a lot more than deliver energy. They fuel our way of life every day. Energy transported by pipelines isn’t just used to fuel your cars – it’s used to make sporting equipment, life-saving medical devices, prescription drugs, household cleaners, plastics, make-up, synthetic materials and even your cell phone. In fact, it’s hard to imagine what our daily lives would look like without energy and the pipelines to transport it.

In addition to powering our way of life, American energy brings a lot of other benefits, too.

Provides energy security

Increased oil production has made the U.S. the #1 oil producer in the world, and a network of pipelines helps make sure people in communities across the country have access to the fuels and products made possible by domestic oil and natural gas production.

DELIVER ENERGY SAFELY AND RELIABLY

Pipelines are one of the most environmentally friendly and safest ways to transport fuel. Unseen, unnoticed and buried underground, pipelines quietly and seamlessly deliver the reliable energy our families need. Once the pipelines are in the ground, we use innovative inspection technology and round-the-clock monitoring to detect and quickly address potential issues.

Supports our communities

The American pipeline industry has a strong record of supporting and strengthening the local communities in which we operate. Jobs and tax revenues help strengthen communities and charitable giving helps families and communities in need.

Boosts local economies

You don’t have to work for the energy industry to benefit from energy production. Pipeline projects have a positive impact on local hotels, restaurants and other businesses during construction. They also provide annual state and local tax revenue to help pay for public schools, first responders and community services we all depend on.
