Pipeline Security in Rural Communities
America’s pipeline system stretches across the country like the veins and arteries of the human body and much of this system crosses the rural environment. The pipeline system delivers two-thirds of the petroleum products and nearly all of the natural gas to the homes and businesses of the United States. The system includes 2.5 million miles of pipelines, operated by over three thousand companies. The pipelines carry not only petroleum products and natural gas, but also other hazardous liquid materials. The purpose of this awareness level, instructor led course is to bring together rural pipeline security stakeholders including public safety, oil and gas pipeline representatives (large and small), local emergency planners, pertinent federal agencies, and other community stakeholders to recognize pipeline security threats and identify mitigation strategies within their jurisdictions to ensure that the rural pipeline sector is secure, resilient.
