Merrion Oil & Gas operates a natural gas pipeline, and we make every effort to maintain its safe operation. We recognize the sensitive nature of our environment and are committed to its protection. On-site personnel conduct visual checks for gas leaks on a constant basis. In addition, we perform gas leak detection tests at regular intervals.
Despite our best efforts, pipeline leaks can occur. Pipelines are generally not visible because they are buried underground for safety reasons. Because of this, most accidents are caused by digging without first determining if there is a pipeline in the area.
