|The Pipeline Safety Program has been in existence in the State of Louisiana since the early 1970s. It was granted and is now authorized under the Federal certification process found in Chapter 601, Title 49 of the United States Code. The Federal/State partnership, in developing and maintaining the program in Louisiana, has helped to improve and enhance the safety of the public and preservation of the environment in the State of Louisiana. This Program is responsible for regulating over 400 different intrastate pipeline operators to ensure safety and compliance with the regulations are achieved. Our duties consist of pipeline operator inspections, compliance and enforcement, safety programs, accident investigations, and record maintenance and reporting.|
