FACT: Safety First is our code of conduct. Pipeline and utility companies spend approximately $7 billion per year to help ensure the safety and reliability of natural gas infrastructure. Pipeline construction uses cutting edge technology that minimizes the risks of lines breaking. Each pipeline is monitored 24/7 by highly trained personnel that can stop the flow if there is an issue, or take action to respond in case of an emergency.
FACT: Energy Builders are absolutely committed to ensuring the safety of the community while protecting our local environment. Pipelines undergo a rigorous environmental impact assessment to minimize their environmental footprint and impact, governed by the National Environmental Policy Act.
FACT: ALL construction jobs are temporary – when the job is finished, Energy Builders move on to the next project. But the impacts of energy infrastructure development impacts the entire supply chain.
FACT: Blocking a pipeline stops one of the most environmentally friendly and efficient ways to transport the clean, reliable fuel that families need to power their homes, businesses and lives. The U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) projects that oil and natural gas will be the primary sources of U.S. energy for decades to come. Modern energy infrastructure is critical to America’s transition to a clean energy economy, as they provide natural gas alternatives to older and less clean burning coal-fired power plants, and enable more renewable energy to be utilized.
