Pipeline Data for the Gulf of Mexico
NOTE: The segments with Nos. in the 500XXX range are located in State waters and we do not have some of the information including pipeline length. As for the other segments with regular MMS segment No. in the 10XXX range, for the most part, we assigned a SN when it was determined that an existing pipeline did not have one. This is a very old field and information is not available. Alex Alvarado, MMS Chief Pipeline Section.

|Direction of Flow
|An indicator of the direction of flow of the pipeline segment. B=Bi-directional; D=Departing Platform; I=Incoming to Platform.
|An indicator of whether the product in the pipeline can be passed in either direction. (Y/N)
|Min Water Depth
|The least vertical distance from mean sea level to the sea floor\ at the shallow part of the pipeline.
|Max Water Depth
|The greatest vertical distance from mean sea level to the sea floor.
|Highest Operating Pressure Allowable
|The highest operating pressure allowable at any point in a system during normal flow or static conditions.
|Highest Operating Pressure Allowable in Receiving Pipeline
|The highest operating pressure allowable in the receiving pipeline during normal flow or static conditions.
|Buried at time of Installation
|An indicator of whether a pipeline was buried at the time of installation. Y=Yes; N=No; S=Self; W=Waiver.
|Type of Cathodic Protection
|An indicator of the type of cathodic protection installed on the pipeline.
|The length of time the pipeline cathodic protection is expected to be effective.
|Leak Detection System
|An indicator of whether a pipeline has a leak detection system installed and operational. (Y/N)
|MMS' Commingling System
|An indicator of the MMS' commingling system the pipeline is part of.
|Boarding Pipeline Flow Safety Valve
|An indicator of whether a boarding pipeline has a flow safety valve (FSV) installed and operational. (Y/N)
