Natural Gas – Safely Delivered
Whether you are at home, work or in public, it’s likely you’re in an area served by the 2.4 million miles of pipelines that safely deliver natural gas to almost 70 million residential, commercial and industrial customers in the United States. Each year the natural gas industry spends almost $7 billion to maintain this distribution system, which the National Transportation Safety Board has determined to be our nation’s safest energy delivery system.
At NJNG, we work with industry leaders, peer groups and regulators to continually improve our pipeline safety operations including design and construction techniques, inspection programs and workforce instruction. We conduct extensive training and periodic drills with emergency responders and state and local agencies testing procedures, logistics and communications to ensure that emergency plans are in place. And, as an active member of New Jersey One Call, NJNG participates in widespread public education programs to promote safe digging practices.
All of these efforts allow NJNG and the natural gas industry to continue to safely deliver clean, energy-efficient natural gas to you every day.

Pipeline operators have teamed up with the National Association of State Fire Marshals (NASFM) to create a pipeline emergencies training portal for first responders. The program provides first responders with in-depth instruction on how to safely and effectively respond to a pipeline emergency. The Pipeline Emergency Training Portal, provided at no charge, is available online, 24/7, and offers continuing education units (CEUs).
