Improving on a Tradition
Koch Pipeline Company, L.P., an independent subsidiary of Koch Industries, Inc.
builds from more than seven decades of Koch company involvement in owning and operating pipelines.
In 1946, as part of the purchase of Rock Island Oil and Refining Co., Wood River Oil Co. (a precursor company to Koch Industries)
acquired a small crude oil pipeline in southwestern Oklahoma. The Wood River Oil Co. also constructed a new pipeline to supply
product to its St. Louis refinery. In the late '50s, other investments brought pipelines in the Northern Midwest and Canada under
the company's operation.
In the ensuing years, the company bought, sold and built pipeline systems transporting crude oil and refined products, as well as
natural gas, natural gas liquids and anhydrous ammonia (for fertilizer).
Today, Koch Pipeline and its affiliates keep a 4,000-mile network of pipelines running efficiently and safely, supplying modern
conveniences necessary for everyday life. Koch Pipeline is committed to meeting customers needs and is actively pursuing
transportation opportunities to serve the Eagle Ford play in south and central Texas.
"Koch Pipeline's safety and environmental performance is outstanding. Koch
Pipeline's intense focus on their pipeline integrity program has made them a
leader in the industry on safety and environmental protection."
Benjamin Cooper, executive director, Association of Oil Pipe Lines
