How Does the Natural Gas Delivery System Work?

How Does the Natural Gas Delivery System Work? Gas flowing from higher to lower pressure is the fundamental principle of the natural gas delivery system.  The amount of pressure in a pipeline is measured in pounds per square inch.From the well, the natural gas goes into "gathering" lines, which are like branches on a tree, getting larger as they get closer to the central collection point.Gathering Systems
Natural Gas Delivery System Materials

Natural Gas Delivery System Materials Through the decades, a variety of materials have been used to make natural gas pipelines.  The selection of materials varies with the date the pipeline was placed in service, the diameter and pressurization requirements of the pipeline, and the characteristics of the local terrain.  Listed below are the most common pipeline materials.Steel Pipe
