As we transport and deliver natural gas to our customers, our goal is to identify and resolve potential problems before they occur. We also have nearly 5,000 employees who are trained and ready to respond in the event of a problem.
What We Do to Keep You Safe
We conduct regular maintenance. Our crews routinely perform pipeline safety tasks, including patrolling, testing, repairing and replacing pipelines.
We follow safety regulations. We meet or exceed all state and federal pipeline safety regulations for pipeline operations and maintenance, including ongoing technical training and testing for employees.
We add odorant. In addition to monitoring the gas for quality, we also add a distinctive odor to help detect leaks.
We conduct compliance audits. State and federal regulators regularly audit our program to unsure that we are in compliance.
We're state-of-the-art. We apply best-in-class knowledge in the operation and maintenance of our natural gas pipeline facilities.
We inspect. We use the latest safety inspection tools to determine pipe condition and help ensure that the pipelines are being maintained safely. To perform these important inspections, the area around our pipelines must be clear of shrubs, trees, fences and other structures.
We're making ongoing pipeline improvements. We replace older pipelines when needed with modern pipeline materials, expand our system to bring in new gas supplies, and help to minimize system damage that could be caused by earthquakes.
We conduct our Integrity Management Program. We use the latest pipeline safety inspection tools in designated High Consequence Areas (i.e., highly populated areas) to check pipe condition and ensure these pipelines are maintained safely.
