Natural Gas Pipeline Safety
Safe operation of local pipelines is a top priority for KNG Energy. Cost – efficient, clean burning natural gas plays a vital role in everyone’s lives. According to the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO), over 3.6 million residential, commercial and industrial customers throughout Ohio depend on natural gas to meet their energy needs. It is very important that everyone, including utilities, members of the general public, emergency officials, public officials and excavators, work together to not only dig safely, but also know how to recognize and respond to a natural gas leak.
Identifying a Leak:
- Smell: To help you smell a natural gas leak, a familiar odor like rotten eggs is added to gas.
- See: Near a gas leak, you might see blowing dirt, bubbling water or an unusual area of dead vegetation.
- Hear: A leaking pipeline might make a hissing sound you can hear.
