Safety, Security and Environmental Stewardship are core values at Sunoco Pipeline, and we are dedicated to safe operation of our pipeline systems.
Sunoco Pipeline is committed to safety at the highest level. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission and other government agencies strictly regulate the manufacturing, construction and operation of all Sunoco Pipeline projects. Sunoco Pipeline meets, and exceeds when possible, all federal safety standards for the construction and operation of pipeline projects.
Additionally, Sunoco Pipeline employs the most advanced methods of leak detection, integrity management and damage prevention to minimize the risk of a release and ensure minimal to no impact on individuals, businesses and the environment adjacent to our pipelines. Certified controllers closely watch the pipeline’s pressure, temperature and flow in real time — 24 hours a day, seven days a week — from a control center dedicated exclusively to the safe operation of our pipelines.
Our pipelines have been studied and tested to ensure optimal safety for residents and businesses located within close proximity of those pipelines.
Sunoco Pipeline is part of the Energy Transfer family of companies. The combined Energy Transfer family owns and operates approximately 71,000 miles of pipeline, and we employ best management practices in the design, fabrication and systematic testing and inspecting of our pipelines and our facilities. We adhere to a strict integrity management and maintenance program in all of our operations to ensure that our network meets or exceeds the requirements of all federal and state regulatory agencies.
