Floridians: Is Natural Gas Available In FL?

FPU Map: Natural Gas In Florida

Natural gas comes out of the ground through drilling. It is odorless and tasteless in its natural form. Natural gas is flammable when mixed with just the right quantity of air and when there is a means of ignition. Natural gas travels by pipeline from the well head, through processing and finally to our homes and businesses.

Over the last several years the USA has been able to access natural gas better than ever before. Three technologies have come together to make the USA become the leader of natural gas production. The technologies are:

  1. Horizontal drilling

  2. Hydraulic fracturing

  3. The improvement of the fracturing solution

There are approximately 2.4 million miles of natural gas pipelines in the country delivering gas to nearly every population center. Florida has two major pipelines coming into the state with a third being developed as I write.
Up until now our gas came exclusively from the Gulf Coast from or near Texas. With the shale gas discoveries companies are working on reversing the flow that used to go from south to north, to now come from the shale fields of Pennsylvania to the southeast.
