API reports increase in pipeline deliveries

API, along with the Association of Oil Pipe Lines (AOPL), released the pipeline industry’s 2018 Annual Liquids Pipeline Report showing that barrels of crude oil delivered by pipeline rose 43% from 2012 - 2016 and pipeline incidents surrounding the public or the environment declined 19% over the last five years.

“Pipelines are critical to safely delivering the energy that Americans demand every day from the gasoline that fuels our economy to the life-saving medical devices made from liquid petroleum products,” said API Pipeline Manager David Murk. “The report furthers the pipeline industry’s top priority of safety – especially in operator commitment to implementing pipeline safety management systems. As the demand for liquid energy grows, our industry will continue its efforts to promote safety in all of its operations to further protect our employees, communities and the environment.”

According to the 2018 Annual Liquids Pipeline Report, pipeline safety has increased according to the following key performance indicators (KPIs) identified by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), Pipeline Safety Trust, and industry.

  • Total incidents impacting the public or the environment declined 19% over the last 5 years (2013 – 2017).
  • Incidents caused by integrity management failures declined 3% over the last 5 years.
  • Incidents caused by operations or maintenance failures declined 24% over the last 5 years.
