At Atlanta Gas Light, we are committed to providing safe, reliable, and environmentally friendly natural gas to our customers in Georgia. Enhancing and expanding our natural gas pipeline infrastructure is essential to maintaining that commitment, while meeting the growing demand for energy in our state.
During the past two decades, Atlanta's metropolitan area has experienced rapid growth and much of that growth has taken place in regions father removed from Atlanta Gas Light's existing interstate supply points and high-pressure transmission pipeline system. In October 2009, the Georgia Public Service Commission approved our Georgia STRIDE (Strategic Infrastructure Development and Enhancement), initiative to upgrade and expand our pipeline system, thereby improving our ability to serve our customers with natural gas on peak demand days.
Investing in Georgia
Atlanta Gas Light’s investment in natural gas infrastructure helps support the continued economic development of local communities. In addition to bringing eficient and affordable natural gas to underserved areas, our infrastructure projects also help create jobs. In fact, each year these projects employ between 150-200 construction workers each year -– everything from right-of-way contractors and heavy-equipment operators to pipefitters and welders.
Best of all, we’re ensuring families and business owners in our community have ready access to America’s most abundant, environmentally friendly fuel… today and tomorrow.
As with all of our construction projects, safety is our top priority. Great care will be taken in all phases of the project from beginning to end in each neighborhood. We will make every effort to minimize inconvenience to property owners along the route.

North Fulton and East Cobb Counties
(Johnson Header Pipeline)
Work on this portion of the Johnson Header Pipeline - which runs from Green Road in Milton through North Fulton and ends at our Cherokee LNG facility (liquified natural gas) in Cherokee County - primarily involves integrity testing of our existing pipeline. This effort occures in phases, some of which have already been completed, and is expected to last through the end of 2013. If the testing involves any additional activity or work around the pipeline, we will notify neighboring property owners in advance of construction and testing activities.
