How System Investments Benefit You

Just like other important parts of the infrastructure in our communities, such as highways and bridges, natural gas pipelines need to be replaced over time. While our current system has performed well, we are replacing aging pipe with modern, more durable pipe.

This is one way that we invest in growing communities and provide you with safe and reliable natural gas service for generations to come.

We are replacing service lines in many neighborhoods across Texas. A service line is the pipe that runs from your street or alley to your natural gas meter. 

In 2017, approximately 24,000 service lines were upgraded in Texas. 

Natural gas service is delivered to your home through a vast pipeline network that starts at a supply or storage facility. After leaving this facility, natural gas is transported through transmission lines to the Atmos Energy City Gate and into our distribution main lines. These pipelines are crucial to providing a dependable supply of natural gas for growing communities. Atmos Energy's distribution main pipelines and transmission pipelines are upgraded with new materials as pipelines age, customer demand increases and safety standards change.

In 2017, approximately 480 miles of distribution main pipeline and transmission lines were upgraded in Texas.

Why is Atmos Energy replacing the natural gas lines in my neighborhood?

We are focused on upgrading natural gas lines that are aging with newer pipe to increase the safety and reliability of our system. The newer gas lines in your neighborhood will require less maintenance, meet all current safety requirements and are more flexible beneath the surface. 

What does this mean for me?

You may notice Atmos Energy crews and contractors working in your neighborhood to install or replace pipelines. This process includes locating and marking various underground utilities such as water and cable, replacing main and service lines, relocating indoor meters to the outside of homes and restoring property to original or better condition. 

Will you need to dig up my yard, sidewalk or driveway— and if so, who’s going to fix it?

Before work begins, we will record the entire construction path to document the condition of sidewalks, driveways, curbs, etc. to ensure any needed repairs will be made accurately. Initial restoration, such as leveling of surfaces, will be completed as the project progresses.
