Item Identification

Title: Pipelines
Status: Completed
Publication Date: 2018-05-30
Abstract:

This data set contains the locations of oil and gas pipelines in the Unites States Offshore Outer Continental Shelf. The areas found in Alaska were calculated NAD 1983 Alaska Albers Equal Area Conic. All data in the layer is projected into WGS 1984 World Mercator.

Purpose:

To show locations of oil and gas pipelines from the Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, BOEM, and coastal states with available offshore pipeline data. As well as, to support coastal and ocean planning and other activities pursuant to the Energy Policy Act, Coastal Zone Management Act, Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, National Environmental Policy Act, Rivers and Harbors Act and the Submerged Lands Act.

Supplemental Information:

The native coordinate system for this layer is WGS 1984 World Mercator (ESPG: 3395). Please note: all MarineCadastre.gov data served by the NOAA Office for Coastal Management and hosted through Esri REST services are in the WGS 1984 Web Mercator Auxiliary Sphere (EPSG: 3857) projection.

Data Quality

Accuracy:

No formal attribute accuracy test was conducted. The attributes in this dataset are believed to be accurate.

Horizontal Positional Accuracy:

All records were verified to occur within the spatial domain of the feature class/shapefile. Maximum scale of intended use is 1:80,000.

Completeness Report:

Data from the authoritative sources (identified through open source research) is assumed to be correct and accurate. Spatial and attribute properties are believed to be complete, although attribute information has been simplified. Geometric thresholds from original data are preserved. No tests have been completed for exhaustiveness. Metadata for source data was very hard to come by and not readily available.

Conceptual Consistency:

These data are believed to be logically consistent. Geometry is topologically clean. During quality control, attributes were checked to ensure that they fell within the expected ranges or had expected/valid values. Text attribute values were checked for spelling and usage consistency. No topology tests were conducted.

Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 792125
Description:

Project all source layers into WGS_1984_World_Mercator & erase any pipelines that fall on land using the USAStateTerritoriesAssociatedAreas feature class with the FederalAndStateWaters layer removed from it to assure pipelines falling in State Waters were captured. Each layer was named with "_project" after it was properly projected and the layers that had to have space erased had "_erase" after this step was completed.

Process Step 3

CC ID: 792127
Description:

Create the Length attribute and utilize the calculate geometry function and calculate the length in meters. Select the Alaska data, export & project into Alaska Albers Equal Area & calculate the length in meters within this projection. Take the Alaska Equal Area length calculations for each attribute and replace them in the proper place in the Pipeline feature class. The calculations for the Alaska data will be from Albers Equal Area, but the layer and data are still projected into World_Mercator.

Process Step 5

CC ID: 792129
Description:

Utilizing the select by location for all other layers individually NaturalGas_Pipelines_US_201804_project_erase , PetroleumProduct_Pipelines_US_201801_project_erase, ME_project_erase, mv_infra_pipeline_ln_project_erase , MS_Natural_Gas_Pipelines_project_erase , LAPipelinesfromTIMS_project_erase, Offshore_pipelines_project_erase select the attributes that intersect with the Pipelines feature class & export this data with a naming convention that ends in layername_Conflict & add this back to your map. Reselect the data that intersects the Pipelines using the Select by location and reverse the selection so that you have all of the pipelines that are not currently present in the Pipelines feature class, using the Editor copy the data into Pipelines feature class.

Process Step 8

CC ID: 792132
Description:

Once the conflicting data has been edited & remove pipelines that already existed you will be left with pipelines to add to the Pipelines feature class, which can be completed with the Merge tool or utilizing the Editor tool. The Pipelines feature class now has all pipelines added into the attributes.

Process Step 10

CC ID: 792134
Description:

The Pipelines feature class with now have all data that was not conflicting from all layers present. Go through each "layername_Conflicting" data set utilizing the Editor tool and remove any pipelines that you can confirm are already present in the Pipelines feature class. Utilize the STATUS_CODE, PPL_SIZE_CODE, PROD_CODE,& SDE_COMPANY attributes that you already filled out to see if the data is truly already present. If a pipeline did not have information available & a N/A was filled in it will not be possible to determine if this line has already been gathered so it should be left in.
