Inspection of natural gas lines in your area
SaskEnergy, and its subsidiary TransGas, take pride in providing safe and reliable service to our customers. Every year, as part of our enhanced safety and gas line integrity program, we routinely perform a variety of safety tests and inspections throughout different areas of the province. This includes surveying for natural gas leaks and visual inspections of utility right-of-ways.
To inspect our gas lines, we may utilize a variety of techniques that can include both vehicle-mounted equipment and hand-held devices. These highly sensitive instruments are designed to detect natural gas and will be used to survey above and below ground infrastructure. In the event that a natural gas leak is detected or other repairs to the system need to be made, SaskEnergy personnel will respond accordingly.
Inspection of the gas line system will take place in your area between April and May, 2021. This will be completed by a SaskEnergy or a qualified Field Representative who has been contracted to complete this work on our behalf. Field Representatives will wear hi-visibility clothing, travel in marked vehicles, and will carry identification indicating they work for or on behalf of SaskEnergy.
Please note that residents will not be notified prior to the specific inspection date. There is no action required by the home / landowner, and no direct contact needed during the inspection.
While surveys are an integral part of SaskEnergy’s annual safety program, all natural gas in SaskEnergy’s distribution system is odourized as an additional safety feature. If you suspect the smell of natural gas, please call SaskEnergy’s 24-hour emergency service line immediately at 1-888-7000-GAS (427).
