Natural Gas Operations
Xcel Energy currently operates more than 2,400 miles of transmission and 33,000 miles of distribution gas lines to serve our customers in Colorado and the Upper Midwest. To ensure continued safe and reliable natural gas service, as well as to meet the increasing demand of new and larger customers, we have a number of natural gas pipeline replacement efforts underway. Each of our operating companies has its own Transmission Integrity Management Program and Distribution Integrity Management Program, which is a regulatory requirement. Through these efforts, we assess pipeline conditions, recheck them periodically and develop plans to ensure safety and reliability.
