High standards

Natural gas liquids pipelines are regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Office of Pipeline Safety, which imposes a broad range of construction and operations standards. Williams has its own high standards for pipeline design, material specifications, construction, maintenance and testing. These standards, which must be met before a pipeline can be placed into service, include:

One-Call 811

One of the greatest single challenges to safe pipeline operations is the accidental damage caused by third parties. Local One-Call centers provide a free service to anyone planning excavation, construction or blasting activities. After a center receives a call, it notifies underground utilities in the area of the planned work. Representatives from each utility company visit the proposed work site and mark the location of their facilities to reduce the risk of damage. To contact the One-Call center nearest you, dial 811.
