SNYDER, TX (KCBD) - ATMOS Energy crews and contractors will be conducting controlled natural gas flarings from Monday, July 25 to Friday, August 5 at various times on ATMOS Energy property.
The property is located at 3801 Houston Avenue and a separate private property southeast of Snyder will also be used. This is all a part of a routine maintenance operation on a section of a natural gas pipeline in the area.
ATMOS Energy officials say flaring is a standard industry practice to safely burn natural gas that must be removed from a specific section of pipeline so that employees can work on the pipe.
People in the area will notice a large, controlled flame and moderate noise throughout the flaring process.
The Scurry County Sheriff's Department, City of Snyder, Snyder Fire Department, Snyder Police Department and 911 operators have all been advised.
