Some natural gas pipelines are as small as one inch in diameter, while other pipelines are as large as 48 inches in diameter. Generally smaller pipe is used for distribution (which deliver gas to homes and businesses) or gathering pipelines (which move production to processing plants or larger pipelines). INGAA represents the operators of transmission pipelines, larger lines that tend to operate under higher pressure, and that serve as the “highways” of the pipeline network.
