Pipeline Route Selection for Rural and Cross-country Pipelines discusses recent high technology developments, as well as the environmental, regulatory, and political issues related to pipeline route selection. This Manual, a thorough revision of the 1965 edition, reviews the many high technology developments that help the routing engineer, the project manager, and other project team members to be more productive in their jobs. The Task Committee on Pipeline Route Selection made an exhaustive review of information available on procedures that have been developed regarding the use of these new technologies. Although safety and economic issues are addressed throughout the volume, a brief chapter on each topic explores some important considerations. Finally, a glossary of terms has been added because many terms may be unfamiliar to engineers or known by other names.

This revision is aimed at all engineers involved in pipeline route selection. For some, it may be their first exposure to pipeline route selection considerations; for others, it may be a checklist of steps to go through to ensure a successful process.
