Underwater Pipeline Resource Center

Overview

The CDMCS Pipeline Task Force (PTF) is a joint inter-agency, public-private initiative focused on ensuring safe operations in waterways with submerged oil and natural gas pipelines through enhanced communication, collaboration, and exchange of best practices among all stakeholders. Preventing loss of life, injury, environmental pollution, and destruction of assets is our mandate and focus. These meetings are restricted to CDMCS members and invited stakeholders only.
