Natural Gas Safety. Natural gas is great for heating, cooking and other uses in the home and is used by more than 50 percent of American households as their main heating source. It is the cleanest-burning fossil fuel available, is efficient, and has an excellent safety record due to the physical characteristics of the gas itself. Most underground natural gas storage wells operate at pressures ranging from 200 pounds per square inch (psi) to about 4500 psi. By comparison, the maximum U.S. interstate transmission pipeline pressures are about 2000 psi, with most below 1000 psi. Total natural gas storage capacity is the maximum volume of natural gas that can be stored in an underground storage facility in accordance with its design, which comprises the physical characteristics of the reservoir, installed equipment, and operating procedures particular to the site. A 2015 leak at a natural gas storage site near Los Angeles temporarily displaced about 8,000 families and raised concerns about other sites.In 2018, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration set a goal to inspect the roughly 400 natural gas storage sites in the country by 2023. Natural gas has the best safety and reliability record of all traditional energy sources. Typically, natural gas that accidentally escapes in the open will dissipate harmlessly into the air. However, when a gas and air mixture within the flammability range collects in a confined space, it can ignite. Call us at 1-888-225-5773 to schedule a natural gas service technician for a free visit to diagnose the problem. Depending on the diagnosis, the technician can perform minor repairs for a charge. Know how to detect a natural gas leak. If you smell gas, leave the area immediately.
