New Federal Regulations Add More Than 400,000 Miles of “Gas Gathering” Pipelines Under Federal Oversight” US Department of Transportation (USDOT, Nov 2021

Pipeline systems need to be reviewed as a whole and as individual pieces, and a logic-based consistent decision process is paramount to comply with federal regulations, to be reclassed, to be divested, or to be abandoned.
