Frequently Asked Questions

The City works with the gas well operators to determine a truck route that will have the least impact on traffic as part of the SUP. The gas well operator must use only the streets designated on the approved truck route, and must pay a road damage remediation fee.

Some wells produce 15-20 years, depending on the quality of the formation.

Natural gas is transported via buried pipelines. These lines are all clearly marked with pipe markers that are normally bright yellow markings with the company name and emergency phone numbers.

Before you dig on your property, contact the Texas one-call center by dialing 8-1-1 at least 48 hours (not including weekends or holidays) prior to beginning the excavation.  The operators will come and mark their underground facilities. There is no charge for this service and is required by state law.
