Figure 3-8. Interstate Movements of Natural Gas by Pipeline: 2011

Natural gas is located in many of the same areas as crude oil. Gathering pipelines (or trunk lines) move the gas from the well to processing plants where impurities are removed. From the processing plants, natural gas is moved to areas of high natural gas demand via an extensive and complex system of interstate pipelines. The interstate pipeline network spans about 217,000 miles.
