Every day we turn on our stoves, hot water heaters, furnaces, boilers, and gas is there. We know that if we smell rotten eggs, to call emergency services. But how does that gas get to your house or business? How does WoodRiver Energy play a role?
1. Oil Companies: Large oil companies drill, refine, and store the natural gas.
2. Pipeline Companies: Ship gas all over the country from the refineries to the public utilities. They use what is often referred to as “interstate pipelines”. Click here

2. Public Utility: Manages gas from the edge of your town to your home. They own and are responsible for maintaining the city pipes and all meters. They are controlled by the public utility commission; and they can make reasonable profit from the distribution and maintenance of the pipelines and meters within your town. They are not permitted to make profit from the purchase and delivery to the town of the natural gas, those costs are passed on directly to you.
