What we aim to solve

Federal and state pipeline safety laws and their implementing regulations have come a long way since the first federal law was enacted to regulate oil and gas pipeline safety in 1968. However, most federal and state pipeline safety regulations still only constitute minimum standards for construction, maintenance, leak monitoring, reporting, and enforcement. As a result, people are continuing to die, be injured, and be displaced as a result of preventable pipeline failures and disruptions. There have been an average of over 20 significant pipeline failures per month in the United States since 2016 and the trend data actually show an increase in significant incidents, primarily from hazardous liquids pipelines. Pipeline Safety Coalition's multi-pronged mission to disseminate information, educate, and develop collaborative partnerships with all pipeline safety stakeholders and rights-holders aims to reverse this trend towards zero pipeline failures.
