Hazardous Liquid & Natural Gas Transmission Pipelines

Understanding hazardous liquid and natural gas transmission pipelines will assist emergency responders, community officials and pipeline operators to work together effectively to prevent and respond safely to a pipeline emergency. The top priority of the pipeline industry is to operate our nation's pipeline infrastructure safely and without incident. Pipeline operators are keenly aware that an emergency can occur despite all their positive efforts.
