PANW Mission Statement

The Pipeline Association of the Northwest (PANW) is comprised of pipeline operators in Idaho, Oregon and Washington that are dedicated to promoting pipeline safety by providing information for excavators, state residents, businesses, emergency responders and public officials.


Idaho, Oregon and Washington Pipelines

Approximately 2.4 milllion miles of pipelines crisscross the United States, transporting natural gas, crude and other energy products every day to homes, businesses and to other parts of the country.  Pipelines transport products that are part of our everyday life and contribute to our community tax base.

There are a number of Government and State agencies that inspect, regulate and enforce intrastate gas pipeline safety requirements.  The Office of Pipeline Safety (OPS), within the U. S. Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) inspects, regulates and enforces interstate gas pipeline safety requirements and both interstate and intrastate liquid pipeline safety requirements.
