The pipeline transmission system, the “interstate highway” for natural gas, consists of 220,000 miles of high-strength steel pipe 20 inches to 42 inches in diameter. It moves huge amounts of natural gas thousands of miles from producing regions to local natural gas utilities and sometimes directly to large users of natural gas.
