Buckeye Partners Accident Attorneys
Helping Those Harmed in Pipeline, Plant & Refinery Accidents
Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Buckeye Partners is one of the largest independent liquid petroleum products pipeline operators in the United States. Its predecessor, the Buckeye Pipeline Company, was founded back in 1886. Buckeye operates a global network of integrated assets providing midstream logistic solutions, primarily consisting of the transportation, storage, processing, and marketing of liquid petroleum products.
Buckeye manages approximately 6,200 miles of pipeline and 115 liquid petroleum terminals and uses its service expertise to operate third-party pipelines. Buckeye’s portfolio of pipelines and terminals spans the East Coast, Midwest, Gulf Coast regions, and the Caribbean. In 2014, Buckeye Partners reported over $8 billion in assets and about $6.6 billion in gross revenue. The company employs approximately 1,900 people.
Unfortunately, petroleum supply and distribution functions are continuing to become more complex and critical. While Buckeye Partners claims that its strengths are strategic asset base, sound financial background, and dedicated employees, it leaves out the pertinent focus on safety to protect the communities and individuals affected by its business.
If you or someone you love has been injured working for Buckeye or by a pipeline owned/operated by Buckeye Partners, call (888) 493-1629. Our attorneys may be able to help.
