Although the total tonnage of transport pipe needed in North America was down as of late summer, that has not been due to decreased construction activity ahead. Rather, it reflects NGL and oil pipes crowding out demand for large-diameter gas transmission pipe, and the prevalence of reversals and conversions of existing pipe, according to a report by Amanda Eglinton, senior research analyst for IHS Global Insight.

Cleanup is underway after nearly 3 million gallons of brine, a salty, toxic byproduct of oil and natural gas production, leaked from a pipeline in western North Dakota, the largest spill of its kind in the state since the current energy boom began.

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A second large oil spill into Montana's Yellowstone River in less than four years is reviving questions about oversight of the nation's aging pipeline network.

Investigators and company officials on Wednesday were trying to determine the cause of the 40,000-gallon spill that contaminated downstream water supplies in the city of Glendive.

The new Cat 586C Site Prep Tractor is a multi-purpose, heavy-duty machine with enough muscle to run power-hungry mulchers and brushcutters needed for clearing pipeline rights-of-way.

GLENDIVE, Mont. (AP) — Workers recovered about 10,000 gallons of oil from a ruptured pipeline that spilled crude into Yellowstone River and contaminated the drinking water supply of an eastern Montana city downstream.

WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton, who has so far avoided taking a position on the Keystone XL pipeline, is sure to face the issue again on Wednesday in a return to Canada as Congress considers approving construction of the contentious project backed by the United States' northern neighbor.

Aberdeen, Scotland-based Forth Inspection Service hired advanced non-destructive testing (NDT) equipment from Ashtead Technology to develop test methods as part of the quality-control procedures for new gas pipelines.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The developer of the Keystone XL oil pipeline made good on its promise Tuesday to try to seize access to the Nebraska land it needs to finish the project — the first steps it's taken since the state's high court removed a major legal barrier.

Natural gas production and pipeline construction thrive on predictability. They depend on reliably meeting milestones and deadlines in order to connect new sources of energy into supply lines.

GLENDIVE, Mont. (AP) — Crews working to clean up crude oil that spilled in and near the Yellowstone River in eastern Montana and prevent it from traveling further downstream were hampered by ice covering much of the river, officials said Monday.
