Where are Gas Pipelines Located?
There are more than 2.5 million miles of natural gas pipelines in the U.S.
There are 218,970 miles of U.S. oil, refined products and natural gas liquids pipeline. This includes over 80,000 miles of crude oil pipelines, over 70,000 natural gas liquids pipeline miles and over 62,000 miles of petroleum products 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 U.S.’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 over 23,000 miles, over 12%, over the past five years, including an 18,000 mile, or 30% growth in oil pipelines.
