Pipeline Replacement Story
Through Spire’s pipeline replacement of aging infrastructure, the company has seen substantial improvement in reducing leaks and methane emissions – ensuring the safety of the community, contributing to substantial environmental improvement and advancing the company’s carbon neutrality commitment
In fiscal year 2020 alone, Spire invested $311 million to replace 318 miles of aging infrastructure resulting in a 19.2% leak reduction per 1,000 system miles of distribution pipelines. In fact, over the last five years, Spire reduced leaks per 1,000 system miles by 66%.
This new infrastructure means lower maintenance costs and improved reliability and service for years to come. It also ensures Spire customers have access to this advanced energy infrastructure to fuel economic growth and job creation, delivering affordable, reliable, clean natural gas to homes and businesses safely, efficiently and with reduced emissions.
