A natural gas utility is either public or privately owned by an investor. Both types provide the same service to the consumer, distributing natural gas to residential and commercial homes and buildings.
Every natural gas utility is exposed to a range of unique risks.
There are natural gas utilities that run peak saving facilities. These stockpile natural gas for supplementing the usual gas quantity that is distributed to consumers during peak utilization times. Other natural gas utilities deliver propane to consumers that do not yet have gas line connection.
Along with other gas providers, both utilities need aggressive loss control as well as safety management programs.
One of the biggest exposures related to natural gas utilities is the possibility of a of underground gas pipe break. This is why it is so important to conduct ongoing checks and line upkeep.
