We Distribute Natural Gas

Our distribution business, Union Gas, is focused on the last step in delivering natural gas to customers.

Some large industrial, commercial and electric generation customers receive natural gas directly from high capacity interstate and intrastate pipelines (usually contracted through natural gas marketing companies). However, other users receive natural gas from their local gas utility, also called a local distribution company.

Local distribution companies typically transport natural gas from delivery points located on interstate and intrastate pipelines to households and businesses through thousands of miles of small-diameter distribution pipe.

Local distribution companies, like the larger interstate and intrastate pipelines, maintain the highest safety standards to ensure that preventable accidents are avoided, and problems with the distribution network are remedied in a timely fashion.
