Emergency Response

Southern Star Central Gas Pipeline has an established emergency response plan in the rare case that a pipeline failure should occur. Hazards that may be associated with pipeline failure include line rupture, release of natural gas, fire, and explosion.

Our operations personnel are prepared to respond appropriately and manage an emergency should one ensue. We work closely and cooperate with local emergency responders to provide education about our pipeline operations and how to respond in the unlikely event of an emergency.

In the case that a pipeline emergency should arise, Southern Star personnel will respond immediately with at least the following actions:

• Locate the emergency site and stop or reduce the flow of natural gas to the area
• Cooperate and work with emergency first responders and the appropriate public officials
• Repair the facility and restore service as soon as possible
• Investigate the cause of the incident to prevent similar events from recurring
