    Hi GCL,

    Since a pipeline material is not relevant for inventory management, no goods movement is made also pipeline materials cannot be backflushed.

    if you go to OMS2 select the material type PIPE you will found it is not value and quantity updating.

    You can enter a pipeline withdrawal for an order or for a cost center. Pipeline withdrawals differ from other goods movements in that they are entered with the special stock indicator P.

    The withdrawal is valuated at the price defined in the pipeline info record.

    Please refer this link

    These movement types when you do the backflushing in REM through MFBF, are picked from REM profile defined in t code OSP2 in which no special stock indicator assignment there.I think you need to do manual consumption for the same with 261 P.
