Integrity management

ExxonMobil Pipeline Company is committed to conducting business in a manner that is compatible with the environmental and economic needs of communities in which the company operates and in a manner that protects the safety and health of employees, customers and the public.  Commitment to safety, health and environmental performance is a long-standing core value of the company.  With this foundation, ExxonMobil Pipeline Company has adopted a comprehensive Integrity Management Program that assists us with compliance with federal and state regulations requiring programs for high consequence areas.  To support the program, ExxonMobil Pipeline Company has a dedicated staff of personnel to insure execution of the Integrity Management Program policies.    

The Integrity Management Program utilizes state-of-the-art inspection methods to assess the integrity of ExxonMobil Pipeline Company systems.  Most inspections are performed with in-line inspection tools known as "smart pigs."  These tools are capable of detecting conditions in the pipelines that could affect safe operations.  Use of this technology allows ExxonMobil Pipeline Company to proactively address possible integrity concerns in its systems before safety and environmental performance is compromised.

Measurement standards

Over the years, ExxonMobil Pipeline Company has emerged as one of the industry leaders in custody transfer measurement.  It is the policy of ExxonMobil Pipeline Company to provide transportation services to its shippers that are efficient, fair and impartial.  Measurement of oil and other commodities as they are received into or delivered from ExxonMobil Pipeline Company's system is a critical operation in carrying out this policy.  Policies are based on the practices and standards from the American Petroleum Institute's Manual of Petroleum Measurement Standards.  To insure compliance to these standards, ExxonMobil Pipeline Company personnel actively participate in American Petroleum Institute measurement committees and are involved in the development of new measurement standards that incorporate the latest technology.
