Environment, Health, and Safety
Woodway Energy is committed to continuously improving our programs through application of the Pipeline Safety Management System (PSMS) and investing in and supporting the communities in which we operate. The team focuses on robust integrity management through design, construction, operating, and maintenance programs.
Strict compliance is applied with environmental, health, and safety (EHS) regulations, and the company is committed to setting responsible standards where laws or regulations do not exist.
All pipeline facilities are designed and constructed in accordance with the requirements of USDOT Regulations, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (“TCEQ”) and TRRC. Each pipeline is hydro-statically tested to verify the integrity of the piping and pressurized for eight hours in accordance with USDOT.
Always adhering to intrastate standards that pipelines must be submerged 3 ft below the ground, have wall thicknesses of 0.25 inches, and utilize pipeline grades of X-60 with a maximum allowable operating pressure of 1480.
The Woodway environmental compliance team monitors and enforces compliance during all aspects of pipeline construction and operation. Erosion and sediment control inspections are performed and the team consistently takes steps to ensure that fuel delivery by pipeline is significantly safer than truck delivery.
Please call 811 before you dig or excavate! When anyone digs, particularly in Texas, whether planting a tree or digging the foundation of a skyscraper, there is a high probability of an underground utility line being within the dig site.
Call 811 from anywhere in the country a few days prior to digging and your call will automatically be routed to your local one-call center.
Provide the operator with information about how to contact you, where you are planning to dig and what type of work you will be doing.
Companies who have potential facilities around your dig site will be notified about your intent to dig.
Each affected company will send a locator to mark the approximate location of its nearby assets and this typically occurs within 2-3 working days.
