Hydrocarbons Transport

Community expectations demand that pipelines and facilities are designed and constructed in such a way that the risk of harm to the public is minimised.  Pipelines projects must also be delivered with minimum impact on the environment and cultural heritage whilst providing a return on investment for pipeline owners.

Pipeline and associated facility design and maintenance are subject to stringent codes and regulatory requirements which aim to achieve safe operation through design life.
