America’s natural resources can help the country meet its energy needs.

But in order to utilize these great resources, we must be able to safely transport product. Pipelines are the safest, most efficient method of transporting products such as oil and natural gas. In addition, pipelines provide millions of dollars in tax revenue and create well-paying jobs.
These benefits are remarkable, but pipelines are not built overnight. They are carefully planned and evaluated before final approval. Check out this short clip for more on the benefits of pipelines and their vital role in fueling our nation.
