Atmos Energy to flare natural gas in Lubbock

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

(Press Release)

Atmos Energy crews and contractors will oversee a controlled natural gas flaring on November 7, 2018, beginning at approximately 9:30 a.m. at the intersection of 82nd & Frankford, expect delays and avoid this area if possible. Contractors will be replacing valves on a section of natural gas pipeline as part of normal, routine maintenance.

“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 for approximately one hour.

The Lubbock fire department, sheriff department, police department, city officials and 911 operators have been advised of the flaring.
