Safety: Every day in every way
Employee safety is a core value of our group of companies. Safety is not a program or a department within WBI Energy, it is a shared culture. The foundation of this culture is found in several local safety committees in place throughout all of our operations.
Natural gas pipelines are the nation's safest method of transporting energy, quietly delivering large volumes of the clean-burning fuel to local natural gas distribution companies, who ultimately carry the gas to your homes and businesses. While our safety record is exceptional, it's important for everyone who lives and works near natural gas pipelines to know basic safety information.
The interstate natural gas pipeline industry invests millions of dollars each year in maintenance and construction programs, facilities testing, research, emergency training and public information to ensure safety and to maintain the reliability of the nation's interstate natural gas delivery system but we still need your help.
WBI Energy operates a vast underground transmission and gathering network of pipelines and other facilities across North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, and Colorado.
The number one cause of pipeline accidents or problems is third party damage caused by digging. We need your help in keeping the right-of-way clear of structures, trees, or any suspicious activity for effective surveillance of the pipeline. We ask you to become familiar with the potential hazards and information on how to prevent pipeline problems and to report any concerns. Again our safety record indicates it is unlikely you will ever experience any pipeline problems; however, if you notice any suspicious activity at or near our pipelines, valves, or compressor stations, or if you suspect a leak please call 1-888-859-7291 immediately!
Pipeline safety questions can be directed to the Pipeline Safety Awareness Coordinator or call (406) 359-7316.
