Koch Pipeline knows that to continue its success it must meet the expectations of neighbors and government regulators, as well as its own leaders and employees. To create superior value for our customers, owners, and communities, Koch Pipeline must continue to be a leader in operating safely, in a manner that protects the environment, and in compliance with the law. We also believe that our commitment to being a good operator includes taking an active role in our communities by supporting organizations that work to enhance education, the environment and human services.
As evidence of its commitment to continuous improvement, Koch Pipeline has earned some of the highest honors from local, state and national organizations for its safety and environmental performance. KPL received the Distinguished Award for Outstanding Safety and Environmental Performance from the American Petroleum Institute in 2011 and 2012. The award is the organizationís highest award. It also received APIís Environmental Performance Award in 2012. Employees have worked 7,408,689 hours since the last lost-time incident (days away from work and restricted work injuries).
Koch Pipeline employees in Texas have achieved Voluntary Protection Programs STAR certification from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. It is only the fourth pipeline operating group in the U.S. to earn that prestigious designation.
The pipeline control center in Wichita is a key element of achieving both safe and efficient operations. The center's high-tech systems and vigilant operators handle remote pipeline control, monitoring and information sharing around-the-clock.
