This chapter will provide an overview of the processes involved in the selection of materials and in quality management for oil and gas transmission systems. To understand the complexities of these processes, it is first beneficial to identify the key activities involved in building pipeline facilities, and to outline the framework in which the selected materials will function. In this chapter, emphasis will be placed on natural gas transmission systems though the process and techniques described may also be used more generally.
