The American Gas Association Peer Review Program is a voluntary peer-to-peer safety and operational practices review program that will allow local natural gas utilities throughout the nation to observe their peers, share leading practices and identify opportunities to better serve customers and communities.
The American Gas Association 2014 Playbook covers the history of natural gas, the challenges and opportunities of the natural gas industry, and the priority issues and strategies with respect to the production, transmission, distribution and use of America s clean and dom
The Natural Gas Industry Buyer's Guide has proven to be a valuable resource for association members and other industry professionals who use the Internet to locate products and services for the entire natural gas industry.
Full-fuel-cycle energy is the energy consumed by an appliance, system, or building as measured at the building site plus the energy consumed in the extraction, processing, and transport of primary fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas; energy losses in thermal combustion in power-generation plants; and energy losses in transmission and distribution to the building site.
Natural gas is a foundation fuel for a smart, clean, safe and reliable energy system. It serves as an efficient source of comfort in homes and productivity for businesses. Natural gas has also become a vital fuel source for electric generation – serving peak demand and also balancing the integration of renewable energy.
Natural gas in transportation can help lead the way in improving air quality and increasing America’s energy security. This foundation fuel can immediately be put to use across the country to fuel a wide range of transportation options.
More than 71 million homes and businesses rely on clean natural gas to meet their energy needs. Local natural gas utilities are part of a complex energy supply chain that safely and efficiently transports natural gas directly into customers’ homes and offices, ensuring their daily energy needs are met. Natural gas utilities work to deliver what is best for their customers – clean, affordable, efficient energy.
Safety is the top priority for America’s natural gas utilities.
According to the U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, our domestic abundance of clean natural gas is delivered via the safest energy delivery system in the nation.
Emissions from natural gas utility distribution systems have dropped 22 percent since 1990, even as the number of customers served has increased by 32 percent.
38 states have a program to facilitate accelerated replacement and modernization of natural gas distribution pipelines no longer fit for service.
