Development of gas supplies in the far north has focused attention on the design and construction of transportation systems to carry this gas from these remote regions to the markets in the industrial areas of North America. The need for high reliability of operation in remote areas under extremes of climatic conditions raises many problems. Principal among these are cold weather operation, accessibility, maintenance, transportation, seismic risk and environmental considerations. It is for these and other reasons that the selection of equipment to operate in a northern environment has to be approached systematically and thoroughly to ensure that flow of gas from the fields to the markets may be maintained under all possible conditions is the most economic manner and without interruption.
