Our Commitment

Doing business the right way, every day, is paramount at Kinder Morgan. We recognize that operating thousands of miles of pipelines and hundreds of terminals across North America is a huge responsibility. To protect the public, our employees and the environment, we invest millions of dollars each year on integrity management and maintenance programs to operate our assets safely.

At Kinder Morgan, being a good corporate citizen goes well beyond operating our assets safely. We are committed to employing sustainable business practices, conducting ourselves in an ethical and responsible manner, and complying with applicable laws, rules and regulations.

In short, we aim to foster mutually beneficial relationships with our stakeholders today to shape a better tomorrow.

Pipeline Safety

Kinder Morgan is committed to public safety, protection of the environment, and operation of its facilities in compliance with all applicable rules and regulations. The company is proud of its safety record and follows many regulations and procedures to monitor and ensure the integrity of its pipelines.

The Utopia Pipeline Project is committed to safely operating and maintaining the new pipeline and associated facilities. Along with our regular visual inspections, we will monitor the pipeline continuously using state-of-the-art equipment. We mark the pipeline at road crossings, fence lines and other areas and the right-of-way is maintained so that it is clearly identifiable. Neighbors who live along the right-of-way also are encouraged to contact us if they have any questions or see or hear anything that concerns them.
