Apart from the pressure tubes of hydropower plants the most common case 
is probably sewer pipes.  For general transport pipelines cutting them 
into rock is rare due to the high costs.  Hydropower penstocks are an 
exception mostly due to the high volume high pressure combination and 
sewage due to the space constraints in urban environments.
