If you suspect a leak contact us immediately.

Continue to track all bulletins and advisories.

WARNING PERIOD

Turn off shut off valve as soon as a hurricane/storm warning is issued.

Check your natural gas service for any possible leaks or damages. If you hear or smell gas leaking or if your service has been damaged during the hurricane/storm call the National Petroleum Corporation immediately.
