PG&E's Natural Gas System Overview
About the System
Natural gas is a key energy source for customers in California and across the United States. In most major cities, natural gas is the clean fuel of choice for heating and cooking. More than 1.5 million miles of transmission pipelines and distribution systems exist in the United States, while PG&E’s gas transmission system delivers gas to more than 4 million people.
For more than 100 years, the safety of the public and our employees has been a top priority for PG&E. Our comprehensive testing and inspection programs ensure the safety of our natural gas transmission pipeline system. We regularly conduct leak inspections, surveys, and patrols of all of our natural gas transmission pipelines. Any issues are immediately addressed. We monitor our gas pipeline system operations 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
