Pipeline Safety

You can feel confident about the way energy is transported across Arkansas. Today’s pipelines are built to ensure the safe delivery of natural gas and oil for decades to come. We achieve success through quality materials, proven technology, high construction standards and a strict adherence to federal, state and local regulations.

  • For safety and integrity, epoxy-coated, high-grade steel is used to build the pipeline system.
  • To prevent corrosion and minimize leaks, each pipe has thick walls with additional protective coating.
  • X-rays of field welds are taken on-site to ensure the integrity of the welds after construction.
  • Hydrostatic testing uses high water pressure to verify that the pipeline is without defects.

Valve sites are placed at specific intervals to ensure gas can be easily shut off to a particular area.
