Atmos Energy Conducts Controlled Natural Gas Flaring Tuesday

Atmos Energy crews and contractors will oversee a controlled natural gas flaring beginning June 19th and continuing Wednesday, June 20th from approximately 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the intersection of Hopkins County Road 2319, just east of FM 1870. It is expected to last approximately two days while the company works on a a section of natural gas pipeline in the area as part of normal, routine maintenance operations.

“Flaring” is a standard industry practice to safely burn natural gas that must be removed from a specific section of pipeline so employees can work on the pipe. People in the area will notice a large, controlled flame and moderate noise during this process. Atmos Energy employees will be on site to monitor the process as natural gas is vented into the atmosphere.

The Hopkins County Fire Department, Sheriff’s Department, Volunteer Fire Departments in the area, 911 operators and city and county officials are being advised of the flaring prior to the work beginning June 19th.
