Protecting the safety of all who live and work near our pipelines is at the very heart of everything we do. Safety is our top priority and drives the decisions we make during planning, design, construction and operation of Byhalia Connection.
Pipelines are the safest way to transport oil. The Byhalia Connection pipeline includes important safety elements, such as:
Once Byhalia Connection is operational, Plains will oversee its operation. Plains will implement an Integrity Management Program, which includes ongoing inspection and maintenance activities designed to verify and monitor the safety and integrity of our pipeline systems and facilities. In addition, we’ll take a number of steps to support its safe operation:
Protecting the environment is as important to us as it is to you. The U.S. has more than 2.8 million miles of oil and gas pipelines, and systems like Byhalia Connection are one of the safest and most reliable ways to transport crude oil. The carbon footprint of transporting fuel by pipelines is far less than moving energy by truck, rail or boat.
