Report an Emergency

The Pipeline Division regulates the use, end-use, conservation, and transportation facilities for movement of intrastate natural gas; regulates carbon dioxide pipelines and compressed natural gas fueling facilities; and enforces the Coastal Management Division's rules and regulations pertaining to the construction and related activities of pipelines in the Louisiana coastal zone. They are responsible for a comprehensive pipeline safety inspection and enforcement program for both intrastate natural gas and hazardous liquids pipelines, and they serve as a clearing house to provide information to users of natural gas regarding the availability of supplies of natural gas. The Division is comprised of two Programs:

Pipeline Safety Program >>

The Pipeline Safety Program is responsible for regulating over 400 different intrastate pipeline operators to ensure safety and compliance with the regulations are achieved. Our duties consist of pipeline operator inspections, compliance and enforcement, safety programs, accident investigations, and record maintenance and reporting.

Pipeline Operations Program >>

The Pipeline Operations Program regulates the construction, acquisition, abandonment and interconnection of natural gas pipelines, as well as, the transportation and use of natural gas supplies.
