I have an 8" gas pipeline running from north to south on my ranch...it was explained to me that in my instance the gas company has access to repair or replace the line as need be. The line is old as the right-a-way has completely grown up with small trees and bushes. The gas company did do a line survey with marker flags a couple of years ago but that's all that they have done to date. The line is exposed where it crosses a gully and I've put my ear to it and can't hear gas moving through it so it may not active.

Our old house in Edmond had a natural gas pipeline just over our property line next door. The builder, had to put $5,000 in escrow in case they needed to rip up a retaining wall or driveway to fix/repair the pipeline that was technically next door. Pretty sure it ran under Fairfax Golf Course (now Edmond Golf Club) which tells me you can do something over it BUT you own the repair damage if they need to work on it.

Still ... Talk to a lawyer.

You are doing the right thing in consulting an attorney - just make sure it is a real estate attorney. It will be worth every single penny.

This is coming from a realtor
