Recently the put a 100+ mile underground gas pipeline through the mountainous region by my home. Are there differences in the structure of the pipes that are above ground and those that are under it?

Yes in the US 49 CFR Part 192 Subpart C is a good place to look to see the minimum design requirements. Design is greatly influenced by location of pipe relative to locations of people. Above or below ground the pipe must be designed to resist loads and loads tend to vary along the pipeline route.
