Exploration and Production Safety

America’s natural gas and oil industry considers safety its top priority and is committed to developing the technologies, standards and best practices needed to help ensure that workplace safety is at the forefront of our activities.  The industry has taken great strides to enhance the safety of its exploration and drilling operations, ensuring the safe and environmentally responsible exploration and production of natural gas, crude oil, and associated liquids on lands administered by state and federal authorities, including production via the use of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling in unconventional plays.  It has a strong safety record, despite a work environment that often involves heavy equipment, hazardous materials, high temperatures and high pressures.
