This chapter provides an overview of elements that systematically influence pipeline design through to construction, operation, and maintenance. Subsequent chapters provide detailed information on these topics.

Pipelines affect daily lives in most parts of the world. Modern people's lives are based on an environment in which energy plays a (predominant) role. Oil and gas are major participants in the supply of energy, and pipelines are the primary means by which they are transported. It is no coincidence that an extensive pipeline network goes hand-in-hand with a high standard of living and technological progress.

Among other uses, oil and gas are utilized to generate electrical power. Using electricity∕oil and gas directly, houses are heated, meals are cooked, and a comfortable living environment is created. Petrochemical processes also use oil and gas to make useful products.
