The map took place along a large oil pipeline in the snowy Siberian tundra. There were large interior and exterior areas in the map. The Counter-Terrorists had to prevent the Terrorists from sabotaging the pipeline.
Pipeline was designed by Alexander Manilov when Gearbox Software was developing Counter-Strike: Condition Zero. Once Manilov handed over the map to Gearbox, further editing of the map was performed by Patrick Hook and Mike Wardwell.
Despite reports that the map had a snow theme, known screenshots from the map show no indication of snow. This suggests that the theme of the map was likely altered at some point in development.
When Ritual Entertainment took over development of Counter-Strike: Condition Zero, the bomb defusal map was presumably scrapped. However, some of the geometry, including parts of the pipe itself, was reused for the Pipe Dream single player mission.
