Abstract: In North America, natural gas lines tally approximately 3.5 million km, and crude oil and petroleum product pipelines account for a further 320,000km. Their sizes range from two-inch gasfield gathering lines to the immense 48-in Trans Alaskan Pipeline System. Altogether, the physical assets exceed $150 billion. And they are changing hands all the time. On any given day, over a billion dollars worth of pipe and associated storage and assets may be on the block looking for a new home. These sales are driven by a number of different factors. Starting in the late 1990s, impelled by needs of efficiency and growth, the largest integrated oil companies began to amalgamate into Supermajors. The mergers of Exxon and Mobil, BP and Amoco, Chevron and Texaco, led to the inevitable overlap of assets, and a variety of divestments were driven by regulatory and redundancy decisions.
