Natural gas is already being used in most American households, and most homes and businesses are supplied by a pipeline network that covers the country from coast to coast.
It fires your heater, warms your water tank and is piped directly to your stove for cooking. Natural gas is clean, safe and affordable, and you probably use it more than you realize.
Natural gas pipelines run from the wellhead to homes and businesses across the United States. Natural gas is produced from wells, either as a primary target or along with oil, and is cleaned of impurities such as other hydrocarbons and then dehydrated and compressed. This allows it to be transported over great distances. It is then sold to utility companies for distribution.
For instance, in your home natural gas can fuel your furnace, clothes dryer, water heater and stove. The clean, blue flame safely and affordably powers the conveniences of modern life for millions of people every day.
