It did to me also when I started the job. And that's why I know I have my old servicemans handbook handy right now caise I had to find it to verify the engineers sizing. I did change the pipe size between the first stage regulator to the second stage regulator which was all underground but it was copper tubing. The rest was black steel.
Fired everything up yesterday and all run just fine and the ones on the ends aren't showing sign of lacking fuel or pressure?

You can also Google international fuel gas code table 402.4(3) to get charts for sizing.
That's what every engineer is supposed to size buy.
All construction codes are the international code books but with each state's amendments.
Good luck

Sorry
Wasn't trying to step on your toes?
I didn't look at your link cause I have had my handbook in my face for several of jobs in the last couple of months?
If you tell me I need to update my book I will understand cause it is about 20-years old? But the principles are still the same.
Unless they have upgraded the type/or content of additive they use to keep the moisture out of the tank.
I can only propose that there be a drip/dirt leg with cap at any turn up into an appliance with a valve opened normally into a 6" nipple with cap and closed to drain the moisture by pulling the cap and or nipple.

realistically. Engineering aside. You ever use a tiger torch? Im pretty sure all of ours are only 3/8 pipe and you get one hell of a flame. You could probably go that small with no issues. But tbh its waaay easier of find fittings in half inch so its a better bet there for sure. Schedule 40 pipe is plenty. If the engineer codebook says go higher than follow it. Im merely looking at the practical and logical side.

Bigger than spec is always fine.

But several concurrent high volume appliances over a long distance, do the math to check.
