Update: PSE Natural Gas Work in Lynnwood Area

Puget Sound Energy recently sent a letter to inform local customers of Puget Sound Energy’s work to burn off excess natural gas in the Lynnwood area. The work was originally expected to take place the week of August 4, 2013, but has been postponed to Saturday, August 17, 2013 due to an updated construction schedule. I apologize for any inconveniences this change in schedule may have caused.

Puget Sound Energy now plans to burn off the excess natural gas between 4 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 17 at PSE’s North Seattle town border station, located at 18928 24th Avenue West in Lynnwood (see map below).

Natural Gas Flaring ExampleHere is what you can expect:

  • You may see a large, controlled flame that is expected to burn between 4 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 17, 2013 (see example image on right).
  • Because the natural gas is burned off as soon as it leaves the pipe, the flaring procedure is safe and controlled. Only minimal natural gas will escape into the atmosphere, and since natural gas is lighter than air, it will quickly dissipate in the open air.
  • The flame will be monitored nonstop by natural gas employees until the flaring procedure is completed.

PSE would like to thank the community for its patience while they work to complete this work as quickly and safely as possible with minimal impact to the surrounding neighborhood. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Patima Dejarath, Project Manager for PSE, at the phone number or e-mail address below. You may also call toll-free at 1-888-225-5773. Dial 8, and then extension 81-2654.
