Pipelines are an essential part of American infrastructure that we all depend on for affordable and reliable energy supplies across the country.
In the United States, there are over 3 million miles of pipelines helping to move crude oil, natural gas, gasoline, diesel fuel and other petroleum products safely to consumer markets.
Pipelines are tightly regulated in the United States. Government agencies that regulate the industry include the U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
