Inspection Records and Accident Reports
While a small portion of the Gas Safety Division's findings lead to formal enforcement actions, the Gas Safety Division thoroughly investigates all methods and practices of pipeline companies, including reports, records and other information to evaluate compliance with state and federal regulations. The voluntary cooperation of the pipeline company to provide the Gas Safety Division with full and open access to the operator's premises and records is essential to the effective operation of gas safety enforcement inspections. For this reason, inspection records and accident reports where a formal enforcement action has not been initiated are not made public. Aggregated data is available on the U.S. Department of Transportation Pipeline & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration's website.

Pipeline Enforcement in Pennsylvania
The Pipeline Safety Division conducts thorough inspections of regulated utilities to confirm that they are in compliance with federal and state regulations. Inspections include design, installation, operation, and maintenance of natural gas pipelines, hazardous liquid pipelines, liquefied petroleum gas pipelines (propane), and liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants.
Under Pennsylvania law, access to information about pipeline locations is limited for pubic safety reasons. To access the portion that is available to the public, visit the federal National Pipeline Mapping System.
