Americans consume more than 700 million gallons of petroleum products each day in the form of gasoline, diesel fuel, heating oil, natural gas and propane.
Much of the petroleum products you use are transported through underground pipeline systems. Each day, millions of gallons of oil and petroleum products are quietly delivered with minimal impact on the environment.
The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) says that pipelines are the safest means of oil and petroleum transportation.
To help make them even safer, DOT has issued regulations related to integrity management for operators of hazardous liquid pipelines. Some Dominion pipelines carry these various commodities, such as natural gasoline, isobutane, normal butane and propane.
This web site provides information on Dominion Transmission’s compliance with DOT regulations and the safe operation of these pipelines.
