About the NPMS

The National Pipeline Mapping System (NPMS) is a dataset containing locations of and information about gas transmission and hazardous liquid pipelines, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) plants, and breakout tanks which are under the jurisdiction of the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA). The data is used by PHMSA for emergency response, pipeline inspections, regulatory management and compliance, and analysis purposes. It is used by government officials, pipeline operators, and the general public for a variety of tasks including emergency response, smart growth planning, critical infrastructure protection, and environmental protection.

This website contains:

  • The NPMS Public Map Viewer, which allows the public to view pipeline maps in a user-selected county;
  • PIMMA, which allows government officials and pipeline operators to view pipeline maps with additional scope and detail; and
  • Find Who’s Operating Pipelines in Your Area, which searches for pipeline operator contact information in a user-selected county, state, or ZIP code.
Please note that the spatial accuracy of pipeline data in the NPMS is +/-500 feet. Therefore, the NPMS should never be used as a substitute for calling 811 before digging or excavating. Distribution and gathering pipelines are not included in the NPMS. For an overview of the NPMS website functionality, please refer to the NPMS brochure.
