North America consists of a vast network of inter- and intrastate pipelines that transport products ranging from water to hazardous liquids to raw materials. The U.S. oil and gas pipeline network is estimated to be 2.6 million miles in length, delivering trillions of cubic feet of natural gas and hundreds of billions of tons of liquid petroleum products each year. The infrastructure’s main environmental health and safety risks include: land use and forest fragmentation, compressor station emissions, erosion and sedimentation, spills and leaks, and explosions.
