Where are Gas Pipelines Located?
There are more than 2.5 million miles of natural gas pipelines in the U.S.
There are 229,888 miles of U.S. oil, refined products, CO2, and natural gas liquids pipelines. This includes over 80,000 miles of crude oil pipelines, over 70,000 natural gas liquids pipeline miles, over 62,000 miles of petroleum products pipeline, and 5,300 miles of CO2 pipeline.
Pipelines transport raw petroleum products to refineries for processing and then safely and efficiently deliver refined liquids such as gasoline and diesel to airports and terminals from which they are distributed to consumers. Due to the America’s surging energy production in the last decade, more pipelines have been needed to transport American-made energy to national and international markets. Total liquid pipeline miles have increased roughly 15,000 miles, or 6%, over the past five years, including an 5,500 mile, or 7% growth in oil pipelines, and a 6,440 mile, or 9%, growth in natural gas liquid pipelines.
