Pipelines play a vital role in delivering the energy American families and businesses need every day. The nation's more than 212,000 miles of liquid pipelines and over 300,000 miles of natural gas pipelines are among the safest and most efficient means of moving petroleum products to consumers. And, because most are buried, they are largely unseen.
The natural gas and oil industry recognizes the integral nature of pipeline infrastructure and is committed to advancing pipeline safety to protect communities and the environment.

The broad, impactful outlines of the U.S. energy renaissance in a couple of recent data points: In November, U.S. crude oil production reached 10.038 million barrels per day – a level not seen in 50 years – largely with advanced hydraulic fracturing unlocking oil from tight-rock formations; the United States is projected to be a net exporter of energy by 2022 in most scenarios studied by the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Strong domestic production will play a major role, EIA says.We’ve arrived at this point – with significant positive implications for American security and economic growth – for a couple of reasons: vast natural gas and oil reserves and an innovative, technologically advanced industry that has been able to safely and responsibly develop those energy reserves to the benefit of American consumers, businesses and manufacturers.
