Boardwalk Pipelines is a midstream company that can trace its roots back almost a century. The point of a midstream company is to move commodity or feedstock; in the case of Boardwalk, this is primarily liquid natural gas. Texas is the largest producer of natural gas in the country, and has the horsepower to move this gas through thousands of miles of pipe.
Some of the first assets that Boardwalk Pipelines came to own and manage date back to the 1940s. Many of these assets are still in service to this day, feeding millions of businesses and homes. Considering the age of these lines, maintenance is paramount. If the daily routines that preserve these lines are neglected, lives and property can be lost. These values are ingrained in everyone who works for Boardwalk, from the executive leadership all the way down to the field technicians who are maintaining the assets daily.
The majority of senior-level management has achieved their status by way of internal promotions, often with roots in an entry-level position. The knowledge, expertise, and relationships these people gain are then passed along to the newcomers within the business. This cycle is aimed at the continuation of culture while incorporating the ideas and technologies of incoming generations.
