What is city gas?

This page introduces the attractiveness of city gas,
which meets the needs of society and customers.

Attractiveness of city gas1

Harmony with the environment

Eco-friendly clean energy

Natural gas, the main raw material of city gas, is an eco-friendly energy that emits less carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) than fossil fuels, such as oil and coal, which can cause global warming and environmental pollution, and does not generate sulfur oxides (SOx).

Effective use of resources

Gas pipes used for city gas distribution (PE pipes) and excavated soil dug out during the construction are recyclable.We make effective use of limited resources and carry out eco-friendly construction.

Improving social resilience

City gas that can be used 24 hours a day, 365 days a year

City gas is indispensable for daily life.Natural gas, the raw material of city gas, is imported from all over the world.We grasp the flow rate and pressure of gas sent from gas manufacturing facilities in real time and stably deliver city gas.We also maintain a security system that covers nights and holidays and strive to ensure that all customers can use our services at any time with reassurance.

Ensuring resilience in times of disaster

To prevent damage to supply equipment, such as conduits, in the event of a disaster, we are replacing gas pipes with those that are earthquake-proof (PE pipes) and repairing supply equipment.We are also working to accelerate recovery in the event of a disaster by automating and remotely controlling supply operations.

Attractiveness of city gas3

Contributing to realizing a sustainable society

We are working on the development of technologies to generate city gas from hydrogen and technologies to transport hydrogen toward realization of carbon neutrality by 2050.We will contribute to realization of a productive life and a strong flexible society by continuously and stably delivering city gas, which is indispensable for daily life, in a sustainable manner.
