This country is crisscrossed by hundreds of thousands of miles of crucial pipelines that transport vital feedstock from sources to the places where it’s transformed into fuel and products. For the valve industry, that interpret into millions of dollars of business.

According to Hart Data and Mapping Services, the United States has more over 700,000 miles of crude oil and natural gas pipelinesabout 100,000 miles of crude onshore pipelines and over 600,000 miles of onshore gas pipelines. This number stands to greatly increase as drilling in the various shale plays across the continent occurs.

These seemingly endless strings of pipes have one thing in common: They all contain large numbers of valves optimized for pipeline operating conditions.
