[Tagging] Tagging for Pipe Line Reserves

Yes, I see now you're asking about the land that the pipeline either runs
over or through.

I would avoid the term reserve, however. I generally think of a reserve as
a larger area, often a park or historic area, e.g., the Gabo Island
Lighthouse Reserve in Canada or the Hinchinbrook Lighthouse Reserve, which
is a Park in Valdez-Cordova County, Alaska. There is also this reserve
which is related to your illustration; the huge area known as the National
Petroleum Reserve in Alaska, but I would not want it to be confused with
your tagging targets.

Maybe landuse=pipeline would be a good pick?
