Virginia Natural Gas provides safe and reliable natural gas service to more than 300,000 customers across southeastern Virginia. To ensure the safety and reliability of our pipeline infrastructure, we continually perform regular safety checks and maintenance. There's a chance that you may see our qualified employees and contractors performing work in your neighborhood. VNG reminds community members to remain vigilant around any active construction site and practice the following safety precautions:
The Steps to Advance Virginia’s Energy (SAVE) is our company's modernization program aimed at renewing our existing natural gas infrastructure — enhancing the integrity, reliability and safety of our pipeline system. Through our SAVE projects, we replace aging, older pipes with new polyethylene plastic pipes that are more durable, reduce our methane emissions and are less expensive to maintain.
Since the SAVE program’s inception, VNG has successfully replaced 100% of low-pressure pipeline from our natural gas system — upgrading over 500 miles of older, aging pipes with more modern pipes. As a result of our SAVE projects alone, we have reduced our greenhouse gas emissions by 31% since 2012, helping us meet our obligation to provide clean and reliable natural gas service to our customers today and for years to come.
