When it comes to safety, the natural gas industry has an excellent record. At Southwest Gas we’re dedicated to providing safe, reliable and environmentally friendly natural gas service to our customers through our underground pipeline systems.

In order to protect people and property, our goal is to identify and resolve potential problems before they occur. The reliability of our pipeline systems is ensured through safe construction practices, comprehensive integrity management programs, improvement projects, and routine inspection and maintenance. Additionally, we use a risk-based integrity management program to evaluate the condition of our high-pressure transmission pipelines and employ specific measures to protect densely populated areas or places where people gather near the pipeline. The program includes inspection methods and devices to evaluate the external and internal condition of the pipe. We continually evaluate our practices to ensure they meet or exceed all federal and state requirements for safe pipeline operations and maintenance.

We also strive to build, maintain and enhance our partnerships with public safety and emergency response agencies within the communities we serve. These partnerships help to ensure immediate and effective emergency response in the event of a natural gas-related incident.
