There are a few different methods to contain natural gas and get it to where it needs to go.
The tried and true method is called black iron pipe, this a a steel iron pipe coated with protective film on the outside to help keep rust down to a minimum in a dry and covered environment. A few pros to this method is the thickness of the material and the cost effectiveness per foot, it also provides great stability and protective measures for the gas inside the line. The cons are it is not flexible, it is heavy, and the connecting method is rather lengthy, including cutting, reaming, threading and double checking the whole process.
A rather new process is called Corragated Stainless Steel Tubing or CSST for short. Pros for using this gas piping is the quickness in installation, and usability. This tubing can have less fittings and ultimately fewer joints for the gas to escape. When installed properly it can also provide lighting strike protection and keep any sparks from entering your homes gas supply. Cons to installing this system the durability does not match the hard iron steel, and also he cost per foot is generally more than the steel as well.
