Line pipe for constructing oil and gas pipelines is made from steel, and in particular, either low-carbon steel or low-alloy steel. Low-carbon or low-alloy steels are suitable for line pipe materials and most other steel structures such as buildings or bridges because they provide a durable, strong material to withstand the service loads imposed on such structures.
