Because pipelines are buried underground, warning markers or signs are installed along the pipeline to help you know their approximate location. Markers should not be relied upon to indicate the exact position of the pipelines since pipelines oftentimes do not follow a straight course between markers. Contact Shell if you wish to know where the pipeline is located.

These markers are posted at roadsides, railroads, fence lines and other prominent points along the pipeline route. They indicate the material being transported through the pipeline, the name of the pipeline operator and an emergency telephone number where the operator can be reached.

Watch for these warning signs!

It's a federal crime to remove or deface a pipeline marker sign. The penalty for each offense is a fine of up to $5,000, imprisonment for up to one year or both.
