Atmos Energy doing controlled flaring of natural gas

Local News

A large, loud flame has been seen shooting up in the air off Iowa Park Road near City View, and Atmos Energy officials say it’s a controlled flaring of natural gas.

Randy West, with Atmos Energy’s public affairs, says tests started Tuesday and will continue periodically through April 11 between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.

West says crews are working on a section of natural gas pipeline in the area as part of normal, routine maintenance.

The controlled release of natural gas from the 40- foot pipeline allows employees to work on the pipeline safely.
