Kinder Morgan is the largest midstream and the fourth largest energy company (based on combined enterprise value) in North America. We own an interest in or operate approximately 75,000 miles of pipelines and 180 terminals. Our pipelines transport natural gas, refined petroleum products, crude oil, carbon dioxide (CO2) and more. We also store or handle a variety of products and materials at our terminals such as gasoline, jet fuel, ethanol, coal, petroleum coke and steel.
In most of our businesses we operate like a giant toll road and receive a fee for our services, generally avoiding commodity price risk. Our customers include major oil companies, energy producers and shippers, local distribution companies and businesses across many industries. We invest billions of dollars each year to build new energy infrastructure and expand existing assets, as well as on integrity management programs to operate our assets safely.

The focus is to improve the safety and health of all personnel who work at our facilities and to protect the environment in which we work.

In order to be considered by Kinder Morgan during the contractor services selection process, each contract company is required to subscribe and maintain a subscription to ISNetworld.
