Southern Company Gas is committed to delivering clean, safe, reliable and affordable energy for our customers, our neighbors and our communities. That’s why we provide efficient natural gas solutions for approximately 4.2 million customers through our regulated distribution companies in four states. We also proudly serve 774,000 retail customers through our companies that market natural gas.
We have large pipeline investments, including a joint venture with Southern Natural Gas, and a partnership in several new pipelines designed to transport natural gas out of the Marcellus shale, the largest gas producing region of the country, to the East Coast. These investments provide our own utilities and others to have greater access to this significant resource.
Our liquified natural gas (LNG) business serves a growing transportation fuel market, and our utilities promote the use of compressed natural gas (CNG). In addition to owning our own CNG fleet, we build and maintain CNG fueling stations for customer fleets and develop public access stations in some states.
We own a wholesale service business that manages physical natural gas assets across the U.S.
Maintaining a diversified portfolio of companies optimizes our ability to weather economic storms and provide consistent and incremental value to our stakeholders. With our size and scope, Southern Company Gas is well-positioned to lead our industry into the future.
