The Murray Natural Gas System
supplies natural gas to the City of Murray, portions of Calloway and Graves
Counties and transports gas for the City of Hardin in Marshall County. Murray
Natural Gas serves approximately 5,500 customers with residential and commercial
customers using approximately 50% of the demand and industrial
customers using the other 50%.
The City of Murray is served by two transmission
companies: Texas Gas and ANR Pipeline. The Texas Gas Transmission supply line is
a six-inch line with 520 psi pressure main that runs along KY 121. The ANR
Pipeline is an eight-inch line with 500 psi pressure main that runs west into the
city near Vanderbilt Chemical Company.
The system is mostly steel (with cathodic
protection) and operates under the direction of the City of Murray Department of
Public Works and Utilities. Gas system employees install all gas mains and house
service lines, while licensed merchants provide house piping in accordance with
state plumbing and NFPA regulations.

Murray Natural Gas will have the following gas turn on, turn off, and
transfer policies. A
representative from Murray Natural Gas must evaluate all gas piping and
appliances before a gas meter can be turned on.
An adult, with a valid state, picture identification card must be
present for this evaluation and must sign all necessary paperwork at the
time the system is evaluated.
When you apply for gas service at Murray Municipal Utilities, you will
need to let the CSR know if you prefer a morning or afternoon appointment
for this evaluation. This same
policy will apply for transfer of gas service.
Murray Natural Gas representatives will also be able to light pilot
lights during these evaluations for a small fee that will be added to your
first bill. A Murray Natural
Gas representative will also turn off gas meters when gas service is
disconnected. For more
information or questions about these new policies, call Murray Natural Gas
