In 2014, the liquid pipeline industry is launching its Pipeline Safety Excellence(TM)
initiative. It reflects the shared values and commitment we have to building and operating safe pipelines. One of those pipeline safety values is communicating with stakeholders. Pipeline operators are committed to sharing publicly the results of industrywide safety performance.
Starting this year, that sharing takes the form of an Annual Liquid Pipeline Safety Performance Report. In it we will document our industry-wide safety record and share it with the public. Together, we will know the areas in which we are doing well and where we can improve. At its heart, Pipeline Safety ExcellenceTM is about continuously improving pipeline safety until we reach the ultimate goal of zero incidents. This will be a key tool in that journey of improving pipeline safety performance.
