These small-diameter, low-pressure pipelines serve as a critical link between high-pressure transportation pipelines and end users. Local Distribution Pipelines in Nontechnical Language explains natural gas distribution systems, a vital component in the overall natural gas transportation system, from their humble beginnings delivering “town gas” to handling today’s complex urban infrastructure.
