tribution. The transmission lines are the heart of these networks. According to a 2002 survey, 51 U.S. and 10 Canadian transmission lines carried 85% of the natural gas in North America. Pipeline & Gas Journal regularly ranks pipelines according to various aspects of performance. A summary of their year 2006 rankings leaders is provided in Table 2. The National Natural Gas Pipeline Network, as of 2000, is shown in Figure 1. As shown, there are heavy concentrations of pipelines in the Gulf Coast and Louisiana, western Oklahoma, and western Texas. Major gas lines extend into all of the continental United States.
