Decades of experience have demonstrated that natural gas transmission and distribution infrastructure is a safe, reliable, resilient, and cost-effective energy delivery system.

In addition, natural gas is our largest source of energy for electric generation, and it provides a myriad of other uses in manufacturing.

In addition, utilities expend significant effort to find and repair leaks as part of their responsibility to operate their systems as safely and efficiently as possible on behalf of their customers and the public at large.
