Contractor Resources

Electric, Gas, and Steam Service Requirements

To ensure safety and reliability, we require all our contractors to follow specific requirements. Our electric, gas, and steam service manuals contain general procedures, standards, and specifications.

Operator Qualification Requirements

When working on a below-grade gas service pipe on customer property, contractors are required to meet all local jurisdictional licensing requirements and to be qualified as an operator per the Code of Federal Regulations, Subpart N—Qualification of Pipeline Personnel.

In order to gain operator qualifications, the contractor must comply with the Operator Qualification Plan, which incorporates principle elements contained in the Northeast Gas Association Operator Qualification Plan Program.

Utility jurisdictional piping is defined as all piping, tubing, and fittings that transport gas from the main for the following:

  • Inside meter(s) - the outlet of the meter
  • Outside meter(s) - outside the building wall
