Pipelines are really the energy lifelines of almost every daily activity. Pipelines play a role in everyone's lives and are essential to the nation's industries. Yet few people are aware of the work done by the country's 200,000-mile petroleum pipeline network that delivers the products that are integral parts of America's economy. It is a network that delivers the nation's crude oil and petroleum products (such as gasoline, jet fuel, home heating oil) reliably, safely, efficiently, and economically.
