Employees, contractors and others conducting an emergency preparedness drill

Our work:
Emergency preparedness 

ExxonMobil Pipeline Company is committed to the safe and environmentally responsible operation of its pipelines and terminals. We patrol our pipeline routes on the ground and in the air. We closely monitor systems at a 24-hour control center, where our operators can implement protective measures if a release or other problem is detected.

We work hard to prevent emergencies, but in the unlikely event of a pipeline incident, we are prepared to quickly respond. Our personnel regularly communicate, plan and drill with local emergency responders, such as fire and police departments, to ensure our efforts are well-coordinated and effective.


Here's how you can help us keep our pipelines safe:

  Before you dig, call 811

Prior to starting work on any project near land marked by a pipeline marker, call 811 – the national one-call number – or your state's One Call System. The calls are free and required by law: Every digging job requires a call (even small projects like planting trees or shrubs) to protect your safety and that of your neighbors. You can find out more about pipelines operating in your area from the National Pipeline Mapping System.


  Keep rights-of-way obstruction free

Please keep any rights-of-way on or near your property clear of obstructions. Do not dig, build, store, place or plant anything on a pipeline right-of-way that might hinder access in case of emergency or maintenance needs.


  Report potential problems

Please report any unusual sounds or smells or suspicious activity to our 24/7 emergency number, 1-800-537-5200. Contact us at any time with your concerns.
