    Hope for the best


    Spoiler:

    • Pipelines can be damaged during construction

    Backhoe/heavy machine scratch the pipe and chipping it

    or some other utility on its way.


    flaws during welding
    • or they can be old, ill maintained and

    usually buried/submerged/humid pipeline have to deal with SRB (bacteria that discharge sulfate) and those "S" eat the steel.
    Ill maintained : lack of Corrosion control.
    • have structural flaws
    Flaws during welding, and design flaws (too much pressure, or wrong shape, wrong flange rating), flaws in welding, etc

    Apparently the gas company, Columbia Gas, cut corners on how much pressure the pipes could take to save money.
