flare

LORENA, Texas (Nov. 6, 2019) – Atmos Energy crews and contractors will oversee a controlled natural gas flaring on Wednesday, Nov. 6 beginning at approximately 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. near the City of Lorena.  The flaring site is south of Barnes Road and approximately one mile east of IH-35. The company will be performing maintenance on a natural gas pipeline in the area as part of normal, routine 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.
