List of natural gas pipelines

For natural gas, pipelines are constructed of carbon steel and vary in size from 2 to 60 inches (51 to 1,524 mm) in diameter, depending on the type of pipeline. The gas is pressurized by compressor stations and is odorless unless mixed with a mercaptan odorant where required by a regulating authority.

Planned pipelines for intereuropean gas transport:

Supply to Europe[edit]

From Africa[edit]

Mediterranee and Saharan gas pipelines to Europe.

All African routes run from Hassi R'Mel the Algerian hub for natural gas, it supplies gas form the Hassi R'Mel gas field. (The planned Trans-Saharan gas pipeline will connect Nigeria to Hassi_R’Mel). Pipelines from Hassi_R’Mel:

From Azerbaijan and Middle East[edit]

Baku pipelines

Pipelines connect mainly from the Shah Deniz gas field in Azerbaijan. Connections to the Middle East are possible:

Planned pipelines for transport from Azerbaijan and Middle East:

A lecture was held at The Institute of World Politics to consider the economic and geopolitics of the rival pipelines and what's at stake for the concerned parties, namely TANAP and South Stream's replacement Turkish Stream.[3]

From the North Sea gasfields[edit]

From Russia[edit]

Russian gas pipelines to Europe (2007)

Planned pipelines for gas transport form Russia:

North America[edit]

Interstate pipelines are regulated by the National Energy Board in Canada[4] and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC)[5] in the US. Intrastate pipelines are regulated by state, provincial or local jurisdictions.



Puerto Rico[edit]

United States interstate pipelines[edit]

FERC requires most interstate pipelines to maintain an interactive web site with standardized information regarding their operations under a heading of "Informational Postings."[6] The exact legal name of each company appears below. Many of these companies are wholly owned subsidiaries of larger publicly traded companies.

It's great to learn that natural gas pipelines vary from 2 to 60 inches in diameter. We just bought some land in the mountains that we would like to build a house on. We like having utilities, so we'll look into the cost to construct a pipeline to our home. I would imagine a smaller diameter would cost less.
