Pipeline

Helping to Protect the Pipeline Industry Before, During, and After Incidents

Whether crude oil, refined products such as gasoline and jet fuel, chemical products like ammonia and carbon dioxide, or natural gas, CTEH has extensive experience solving environmental health and safety issues in the pipeline industry. Another important way we can partner with executive leadership, in-house subject matter experts, HAZMAT specialists and EHS managers is through providing drills and exercises as mandated by OPA 90.

CTEH employs a unique team with extensive pipeline emergency response and United States Coast Guard experience that spans over 50 years. We have participated or helped lead large-scale drills and exercises, including exercises involving multiple countries and thousands of stakeholders. This team can also run a full incident command and provide an Incident Management Assistance Team. We strive to instill a sense of security with our client’s internal emergency response teams - allowing them to quickly get back to their day job, with the confidence that CTEH will manage the project through to site closure.
