An Increase in Safety Leads to a Decrease in Emissions

Fact Sheet April 01, 2015

A nationwide field study by Washington State University concluded that as little as 0.1 percent of the natural gas delivered nationwide is emitted from local distribution systems. Since 1990, natural gas utilities have added more than 700,000 miles of distribution mains and services to serve more than 18 million customers. Continued efforts to upgrade and modernize the natural gas pipeline network to enhance safety are lowering emissions even further.
