Pipelines


  • In Iowa there are 41,410 miles of hazardous liquid and natural gas pipelines in Iowa. There are 51 pipeline operators in Iowa. (2010 Iowa Pipeline Association)
  • Iowa's pipeline system provides the state with liquid petroleum, natural gas, anhydrous ammonia, crude oil and highly volatile liquids.
More than 97 percent of the nation’s transportation energy needs are met by petroleum products, and 64 percent of these products are moved through America’s pipeline network (PHMSA 2011).  The following links provide valuable safety and education information about pipelines.
