Pipeline Replacement PSA
The natural gas that heats your home, cooks your food, and warms your water is not delivered to your home by a delivery man. Rather, your natural gas is delivered through hundreds of miles of underground pipelines right when you need it, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year.
Tracing our heritage back to 1885, we at Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania have been delivering natural gas to Pennsylvania’s communities for generations.
After decades of providing natural gas delivery service to your parents and grandparents, some of our pipes are nearing the end of their useful life. These aging pipelines served us well, but they are now ready to be retired. That’s why since 2007, we invested nearly $1.1 billion in modernizing the natural gas distribution system that provides service to you. Of that, nearly $845 million was dedicated to replacing nearly 730 miles of pipe. In 2016 alone, we will invest approximately $210 million in Pennsylvania, with more than $160 million dedicated to upgrade aging infrastructure.
At Columbia Gas of Pennsylvania, we see our pipeline replacement program as an investment in the communities we serve. The upgrades we’re doing now are part of our ongoing commitment to safely, reliably, and efficiently deliver your natural gas for generations to come.
