Health, Safety & Environment

The Crestwood family of companies has earned a reputation as a safe, environmentally conscious operator and a good neighbor in the communities in which we live, work and operate. We demonstrate that every day through our commitment to:

  • Promoting environmental awareness and responsibility among our employees.
  • Meeting or exceeding all required industry performance standards.
  • Assessing the environmental effects of all our activities and operations.
  • Continuously seeking to improve our environmental performance.

Operational safety and environmental protection are top priorities at Crestwood. We work to ensure that all of our pipelines, processing and storage facilities are constructed, maintained and operated at a level that meets or exceeds all state and federal regulations. In order to maintain the integrity and safety of all of our midstream facilities, highly trained personnel diligently follow an intensive protocol of operational processes and procedures for each facility. At all of our facilities, we monitor flow rates, pressures and other key operating conditions 24 hours a day, and our controllers can shut down midstream operations quickly if a problem is detected.

To avoid potential problems, we regularly inspect our processing and storage facilities and pipeline rights-of-way to ensure their security and integrity. We communicate regularly with emergency officials, local police and fire departments, and we have detailed coordination plans in place in case of an emergency.

Damage Prevention

The largest cause of damage to pipelines, or other underground facilities including electric lines, telecommunication or cable wires, is excavation. In every state, any excavator, whether landscaping, building fences, or a major construction project, must make a call to a state One-Call center prior to beginning any excavation activities.

If you are planning to excavate, call your local One-Call center at least two days prior to beginning excavation by simply dialing 8-1-1. Once the One-Call center is notified, pipeline operators, and other underground facility operators will determine and mark the exact location of a pipeline within the planned digging area. If damage occurs during excavation resulting in an emergency, dial 9-1-1.

In Texas, those excavating near a pipeline must follow additional safety requirements implemented by the Texas Railroad Commission. The requirements are the steps an excavator must take before digging or excavating. If the steps are not followed, an excavator is subject to fines and penalties by the Railroad Commission. When excavating in Texas, you must follow the steps outlined below which summarize the state law.
