Afternoon TEA: Natural Gas is Safe and Clean American Energy
Did you know?
Natural gas is one of the safest and cleanest sources of American energy. In the last 50 years, gas utilities have added 30 million more residential customers with virtually no increases in emissions.
When a gas drilling site is developed, everything from site access to safety is carefully planned and monitored following state and local laws. And, technological advancements like horizontal drilling have allowed the industry to produce more with far fewer and smaller well sites than just a decade ago. And, the U.S. Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration has said that natural gas delivery systems are the safest in the nation.
From its origin at the wellhead, to delivery through transportation pipelines (2.3 million miles of pipelines in the USA!), to its end use for power generation and fueling appliances in our homes, natural gas delivers the clean, reliable and affordable energy that American households need. America loves to keep the lights on, cook and heat with natural gas!
