Innovation is in the Pipeline
Petroleum shipped by underground pipelines safely reaches its destination 99.999% of the time. As awesome as that is, industry’s goal is 100%. This culture of safety performance stretches across America’s 215,000-mile liquid pipeline network.
Pipelines use innovative technologies for monitoring and for optimizing performance. Sensors, drones and other sophisticated equipment allows pipeline engineers to see what’s going on 24/7 and to maximize response times.
We need more pipeline infrastructure so that all parts of the country benefit from America’s energy revolution. An “energy disparity” exists in some places, such as New England, where consumers are under-served because there’s not enough pipeline capacity, especially during peak winter months.
