The safety of the communities, people, and the environment is at the heart of our project.
We are committed to being good neighbors and incorporating feedback from all relevant stakeholders into both the proposed route and the project’s overall design.
Safety is at our core and the Matterhorn Express Pipeline’s highest priority.
Once completed, highly trained pipeline controllers use advanced technology to carefully monitor our pipelines — 24/7/365 — and complete regular aerial and ground safety inspections along the route.
We employ a dedicated team of safety and environmental professionals who build and maintain stringent safety programs and practices, and every single employee and contractor has the authority to stop work they believe is unsafe.
We are dedicated to pipeline safety, use high-quality, US-made steel pipe, and ensure our pipelines meet or exceed the applicable standards for pipeline construction and operation and the contractor has the authority to stop work they believe is unsafe.
Environmental Permits. We’ve secured the environmental permits from state, and local agencies, and gathered significant amounts of environmental data through field study and analysis, which we provide, to regulators and permitting agencies as required.
Environmental Study. We have thoroughly surveyed the pipeline’s route and are working with federal agencies to ensure there are no adverse effects to threatened or endangered species, or the habitat, during the construction and operation of the Matterhorn Express Pipeline.
Safe Construction. The safety of our personnel, landowners, and the surrounding communities is of the utmost importance throughout the construction process. Utilizing industry best practices, we ensure the Matterhorn Express Pipeline is completed in a safe and secure manner.
Remote Shutdown. Highly trained pipeline controllers are able to take real-time and nearly instantaneous action to remotely shut down a pipeline system if a problem is suspected and the line can only be returned to operation after field personnel conduct a visual inspection.
Pipeline Inspection. Regular aerial surveillance of the line to look for potential risks to the pipeline, including encroachment or other unauthorized activity on the right-of-way, as well as any other potentially concerning surface conditions along the pipeline. We also conduct regular foot patrol inspections along the entire route.
Pipeline Markers. Pipeline markers installed within line-of-sight on the pipeline route noting the general location of the pipeline, including at road, property, and creek crossings.
