Upstream Pipeline Network
Any pipeline or network of pipelines operated or constructed as part of an oil or gas production project, or used to convey natural gas from one or more production facilities of this type to a processing plant, a terminal or a final landing terminal. Those parts of such networks and facilities that are used for local production activities of a deposit where the natural gas is produced are not regarded as upstream pipeline networks.
