Pacific Northwest and the U.S. Rely on the Gas System.

Frigid temperatures that hit the Pacific Northwest during the week of January 13-19 resulted in record-breaking natural gas deliveries on our system. This came at a time when the electric system was experiencing widespread power outages due to the severe weather.
