Access Midstream Partners is dedicated to operational excellence in all we do, and this commitment to excellence extends to the safety of our employees and neighbors and the preservation of the environment. Throughout the company's operating areas, our operational and safety standards meet or exceed regulatory requirements, and our continuous pipeline monitoring maintains the safety and integrity of our gathering systems.
We are also deeply committed to environmental stewardship. Our pipeline is buried underground and clearly identified by marked rights-of-way as we strive to protect the natural environment and minimize the impact of our operations. In addition, we work hard to be a good neighbor and educate the general public, emergency responders and excavators about pipeline operations and safety, especially when it comes to digging.
