Where does your natural gas come from?
Providing natural gas service for our New Mexico Gas Company customers begins with the natural gas. New Mexico has the third richest natural gas reserves in the United States. The two main natural gas-producing areas in our state are the Permian Basin and the San Juan Basin. In fact, the San Juan Basin is the largest natural gas reserve in the entire country. Most of the natural gas that New Mexico Gas Company purchases for our customers comes from the Permian and San Juan Basins.

To bring natural gas safely and reliably to homes and businesses across the state, New Mexico Gas Company maintains more than 10,000 miles of gas distribution and 1,600 miles of transmission pipelines. Quietly and out of sight, our pipelines transport more than 80 billion cubic feet of natural gas each year.
