Natural gas is the cleanest-burning of all fossil fuels that powers industries and heats more than half of all American homes.
When a natural gas deposit is located, a well is drilled to bring the gas to, or close to, the earth's surface where it is pumped to a processing plant. Natural gas travels from the processing plant through large underground pipelines. These pipelines are designed, constructed, maintained and operated in accordance with Department of Transportation regulations.
