We Need Pipelines

America is a big country, and we have places we need to go. We need to get to work, visit our friends, family and favorite places, travel and live our lives. All of this takes energy and a lot of it. Most of us live far from where energy is produced, and not near where it is refined into gasoline, diesel or jet fuel. We need pipelines to get energy from where it is produced, to where it is turned into useful products, and then on to us in our local regions. Because energy is so important, we need it to be affordable and we need it where and when we want to use it. This creates opportunity for good jobs and better lives. All of this delivered by pipelines.

Pipelines deliver affordable fuels for affordable vehicles.

Opportunity

OPPORTUNITY

Pipelines provide the energy and raw materials for millions of good-paying jobs.

Opportunity for Good Jobs

Opportunity

Building and operating our pipeline network provides thousands of good-paying jobs. Alternative jobs in other sectors often do not pay as much and are fewer in number. Our entire oil and gas sector of more than 10 million jobs with billions of dollars pumped into the economy depends on pipelines delivering that energy.

Affordability

For some families, staying warm in the winter, getting to work, or running the air conditioning in the summer is a struggle. Tight family budgets spread across rent or a mortgage, medical expenses and food also need to pay for energy. Pipeline-delivered energy has helped America save billions and households thousands each year.

Lower Emissions

Government study shows pipelines emit lower greenhouse gas emissions, cause fewer incidents and release fewer barrels than other ways to transport energy. That energy is going to travel to us one way or another. Pipelines are the cleanest and safest way to deliver that energy.
