Responding to releases of products transported by pipelines is critical to the
safety of yourself, your family and our community.
Product releases can result in flammable vapors that could be hazardous if ignited.
If you find a release or even suspect there might be a problem with the pipeline, immediately take the following response actions:
Do not attempt to extinguish a fire that may be fed by the contents of the pipeline.
Do not attempt to stop the flow of the pipeline by closing any valves or operating any of the pipeline equipment.
Eliminate and prevent ignition sources:
Turn off any machinery and/or equipment in the immediate area.
Turn off any lit pilot lights.
Do not light a match, start an engine or even switch on or off an electric light.
Do not drive into or near the area around the leak.
Warn others to stay away from the area.
Koch Pipeline Company's control center monitors about 4,000 miles of pipeline.
Satellite technology provides reliable, continuous communication with field sites.
Innovative information technology capabilities allow the control center to detect,
isolate, and analyze potential problems.
