    DCP Midstream Pipeline Integrity Management Program
    Our Pipeline Integrity Management Program ensures our facilities are safe, reliable, and properly maintained to help keep our communities safe. Our Pipeline Integrity practices include monitoring, inspecting, routine testing, risk analysis techniques and other methods as needed to keep our natural gas and liquid transmission pipelines fit for service at all times.

    All of the nation’s pipelines are regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA). The Pipeline Safety Improvement Act of 2002 requires each transmission pipeline operator to implement an integrity management program. More information on Integrity Management and related subjects can be found at the PHMSA Integrity Management website.

    If you have questions regarding our Pipeline Integrity Management Program, please contact us at pipeline-integrity@DCPMidstream.com.
