A new analytical equation for prediction of temperature profile of a buried gas pipeline is developed. Utility of this equation is illustrated by its application to corresponding states principle. The resulting equation is tested through prediction of the actual Schorre data. It is shown that the new equation can predict temperature profile more accurately than the others without using any chart of tables. This equation can also be used for prediction of gas mixture temperature profile flowing in a buried pipeline.
