SAFETY INFORMATION

GENERAL INFORMATION

 

Natural gas is one of the safest and most reliable fuels available. Natural gas is lighter than air and will dissipate into the atmosphere unless confined. It has a higher combustion temperature than other fuels.  Combustion cannot occur unless a narrow range of fuel-to-air mixture is present.

Theft of natural gas and tampering with Meota's equipment or infrastructure creates a safety hazard for the offender and the offender’s neighbours. It is an offence under The Criminal Code.
