PIPELINES 101As a matter of economic, safety and environmental considerations, pipelines are the most logical choice for the movement of petroleum and natural gas-based products.
Did You Know?
By developing Texas’ abundant supply of oil and natural gas, we significantly decrease our reliance on foreign sources of energy.
Pipelines are the primary transportation mechanism that provides consumers with dependable, low cost sources of energy and industry with the raw material used in the production of a myriad of common household products such as plastics, fertilizers, paints and detergents.
The pipeline industry makes a significant economic impact to the state of Texas, supporting communities throughout Texas by providing jobs, supporting local businesses and schools, and increasing tax revenue to local governments.
Pipelines make it possible for the oil and gas industry, the economic backbone of Texas, to reliably transport essential consumer-driven products to market and contribute to affordable energy prices.
Pipelines produce far fewer air pollutants and account for less spillage than traditional ground transportation while improving overall safety.
