Six Reasons Why We Need More Pipelines in Texas

Pipelines are the safest, most environmentally responsible method of transporting oil and natural gas. With over 2.5 million miles of pipeline crisscrossing the United States and roughly 466,000 miles of pipeline throughout the state of Texas, pipelines play a crucial role in ensuring safe, efficient delivery of the energy we use every day. But even with this extensive pipeline network, more capacity is needed to allow the Texas energy boom to continue, as well as making sure Texas oil and natural gas reach consumers at home and our trading partners abroad.

Texas Legislature


Texas is the largest oil and gas producing state, and that production depends on Texas pipelines to deliver affordable energy to consumers. These energy supplies fuel the Texas miracle, which is made possible by a low tax, low regulation operating environment that differentiates us from places like California or New York. Senate Bill 421 would create new and unnecessary regulations on Texas pipelines that will give the government more control over Texas energy.
