What Is Natural Gas?
Natural gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel. It moves silently, safely and efficiently through an extensive network of interstate pipelines in the United States.
Below are some reassuring facts about natural gas:
- Natural gas is not a poison or toxic.
- Natural gas is colorless and odorless in its natural state.
- Natural gas will not ignite on its own. To burn, gas requires both a precise amount of oxygen and an ignition source.
- Natural gas is lighter than air and will rise.
