From processing plants, transmission lines deliver processed natural gas to towns and cities where the natural gas will be used. Transmission pipelines transport large volumes of gas at high pressures, often over long distances.
LG&E and KU transmission pipelines are typically:
- Made of high-strength carbon steel
- Up to 30 inches in diameter
- Pressurized at 200 to 720 psi
- Placed underground in right-of-way corridors
