Piedmont Natural Gas Flare Notification

As a part of our commitment to delivering safe, reliable natural gas service, Piedmont Natural Gas will perform a series of routine pipeline maintenance activities 8/15 – 8/31 near the intersection of E. Moore Street and E. Leonard Street in southeastern Brunswick County.

During the work, it may be necessary for Piedmont to “flare,” or burn off, any excess natural gas.  You may notice:

  • A tall flame, visible for a half-mile or more
  • A loud noise
  • The smell of natural gas
  • Technicians in your area

These activities are safe, routine and controlled, and will be managed by trained Piedmont Gas personnel in cooperation with local fire department resources.  Please do not be alarmed, as this is a normal part of their operations.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as Piedmont Natural Gas works to maintain a safe, reliable natural gas system.  If you have questions, please call Scott Jenkins, a project manager with Percheron Field Services, at 704.997.8104
