Gas Service Guidebook

The Gas Service Guidebook was developed to help all builders and new construction applicants effectively navigate through our service establishment process which includes legal, regulatory and safety information. Our hope is that this Gas Service Guidebook becomes an invaluable reference to safely and efficiently deliver natural gas service to customers.

To maintain current information, updates are made online as soon as possible with an annual review performed in the second quarter of each year. To support green initiatives, we will not publish a printed version.
