Stay Safe: Natural Gas
Homes. Businesses. Industries. Together, they comprise millions of natural gas consumers in neighborhoods and communities like ours across the nation. Underground pipeline energy highways, over two million miles in all, safely transport and distribute natural gas to customers nationwide. This network of natural gas pipelines, according to federal government statistics, is the nation's safest energy transportation system.
Most natural gas pipelines are buried underground, not only for safety reasons, but also to protect them from the weather and ensure uninterrupted service. Whether you are a GUC natural gas customer or not, you probably live and work near underground gas pipelines that run under streets, sidewalks and yards.
As your natural gas operators, we are dedicated to making the natural gas pipeline delivery system even safer by sharing the important safety information contained on this website.
