Usually the pipeline is mapped just with simple ways way. See man_made=pipeline.

But when the pipeline is very long it might be necessary to split the ways. In that case it may be useful to in addition create relation to hold the parts together.

How to map?

Create a relation relation of the type route and add the tag route=pipeline. This should be done in addition to tagging individual ways as man_made=pipeline.
