About the Pipeline

Pipelines safely transport critical energy resources.

Monitored 24 hours a day, pipelines are the safest and most efficient means of transporting energy resources, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.

This critical infrastructure is vital to keeping supply chains and our economy moving. Pipelines are all around us to ensure homes and businesses have reliable access to the energy resources people need. Find all of the pipelines near you using the National Pipeline Mapping System.

The Minnesota Pipe Line system delivers crude oil to make gasoline, jet fuel, propane, fertilizers, and other products that people need and use every day.
