We maintain our assets in strict compliance with all applicable laws and regulations - and have done so from a maintenance standpoint even before these laws and regulations were in place!

We work hard to keep our operation of pipelines, terminals, and associated facilities compliant with a series of stringent and complex federal, state, and local laws and regulations governing the discharge of materials into the environment or otherwise relating to the protection of the environment. We also believe that our operations comply with the OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Act) requirements, including general industry standards, record-keeping requirements, and monitoring of occupational exposure to regulated substances.

Aware of the importance of routine maintenance, we inspect our pipelines regularly using state of the art inspection equipment from third party suppliers. Third parties also assist us in interpreting the inspection results.

We are fully committed to keeping our operations in compliance with all applicable environmental laws and regulations.

For more detailed information about our commitment to health, safety and the environment, please refer to our SEC filings.
