Pipeline 101 Website Revision Live

API and AOPL have overhauled an educational website about liquid pipelines. Available at and, the site addresses foundational questions:

  • Why Do We Need Pipelines?
  • How Do Pipelines Work?
  • Where Are Pipelines Located?
  • Are Pipelines Safe?
  • How Can You Help With Safety?

The site discusses the different types of pipelines, the products they transport, the transportation process, the safety record, and actions operators take to keep pipelines safe. The site teaches about pipelines rights-of-way and markers, and offers national and regional view of major liquids pipelines. Visitors to the site are taught how to recognize a pipeline leak, what do if a leak occurs, and to Call 811 Before You Dig. The site offers hyperlinks to API, AOPL, the Common Ground Alliance and regulatory and safety oversight agencies such as PHMSA.
