Midlothian, Texas (April 25, 2017) – Atmos Energy crews and contractors will oversee a controlled natural gas flaring on April 25, 2017, beginning at approximately 8:00 a.m. in the area of Gifco Road, one mile west of Quarry Road in Midlothian. The company will be working on a section of natural gas pipeline in the area as part of normal, routine maintenance operations.
“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 for approximately three to four hours.
The Midlothian Fire Department, Sheriff Department, Police Department, City officials and 911 operators have been advised of the flaring.
