What is natural gas and why is it important?

Natural gas is natural because it started from organic matter (plants and animals) buried over time below the earth’s surface millions of years ago. Today natural gas is one of the most prominent energy sources used to generate electricity, warm homes and cook meals.

From wellhead to burner tip, how natural gas gets to you

Turning on a gas stove or furnace can be pretty simple. One switch and blue flames start dancing, providing reliable, affordable energy to cook your food or heat your home.

But how did the natural gas get to you?

Natural gas powers America

Electricity providers are shifting dramatically to natural gas over other sources.

The companies that provide the electricity to light, heat and cool your home are turning to natural gas because it’s America’s largest source of energy, offering a clean, reliable and affordable way to create power.
