Natural Gas Utility Rate Structure: The Customer Charge Component - 2015 Update (May 2015)

The largest part of a natural gas customer’s bill is the cost of the gas itself, over which the utility has little control.  This cost accounts for about 41 cents of every dollar of revenue received by a distribution utility.  The bill amount for the gas portion varies with price as well as amount consumed.  Natural gas utilities also incur costs that are not dependent on a customer’s consumption.

Natural Gas Industry Safety Programs 

Because safety is the natural gas industry's top priority, the industry spends more than $6 billion each year to maintain the system's excellent safety record.  Serious accidents on the natural gas delivery system are rare, but the natural gas industry is dedicated to making them obsolete.

Natural Gas Delivery System Materials

Natural Gas Delivery System Materials 

Through the decades, a variety of materials have been used to make natural gas pipelines.  The selection of materials varies with the date the pipeline was placed in service, the diameter and pressurization requirements of the pipeline, and the characteristics of the local terrain.  Listed below are the most common pipeline materials.

How Does the Natural Gas Delivery System Work?

How Does the Natural Gas Delivery System Work? 

Gas flowing from higher to lower pressure is the fundamental principle of the natural gas delivery system.  The amount of pressure in a pipeline is measured in pounds per square inch.

From the well, the natural gas goes into "gathering" lines, which are like branches on a tree, getting larger as they get closer to the central collection point.

Natural Gas Furnace Efficiency Rule

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently issued a notice of proposed rulemaking for residential natural gas furnaces, which would mandate that all non-weatherized natural gas furnaces manufactured must have a 92 percent or higher efficiency rating. These proposed standards would eliminate efficient, non-condensing furnaces, causing an undue burden on, and significant costs for, many natural gas customers.
