Safety and Training

Pipelines are the safest way to transport oil and natural gas, but we still want our communities prepared for anything. ExxonMobil Pipeline Company sponsors local and regional emergency responders to participate in training programs, such as the Texas A&M Engineering Extensions Service (TEEX), to ensure they have the education and resources to handle any situation. We also are committed to continuously improving safety of pipelines and are consistently developing technologies to help prevent potential emergencies.

Partnering with TEEX

ExxonMobil Pipeline Company is proud to partner with the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service on a course to train firefighters who may respond to ExxonMobil assets.

ExxonMobil Pipeline Company pays for the course fees, including tuition, some lodging and meals, for class participants. Following successful sessions over the past years, ExxonMobil Pipeline Company is continuing its support with more trainings being offered. Responders receive valuable knowledge they will need to help protect their communities and families in the event of an industrial type emergency.

The 2021 class sessions are being offered October 16-17 and December 4-5, and will be held at the TEEX Emergency Services Training Institute on Brayton Fire Training Field in College Station, Texas.
