Natural Gas Emergency Response is a Key Function of Gas Operations

Though relatively safe, natural gas is highly combustible when the proper air-to-fuel ratio exists, and natural gas can cause explosions when it is trapped in a confined space. Thus, responding to emergencies in order to protect life and property is the highest priority for gas company operations and maintenance personnel.

Does Renewable Natural Gas Have the Potential To Address Natural Gas’ Greenhouse Gas Problems?

Natural gas is mostly composed of methane, which is a greenhouse gas that is 20 to 80 times as potent as carbon dioxide (CO2). This means natural gas emissions add to global warming and climate change. But renewable natural gas or RNG is carbon neutral or even carbon negative. Can RNG be a fuel source that actually reduces greenhouse gas emissions?
