Riviera Utilities Gas Department serves residential and commercial natural gas customers. The utility obtains natural gas through Gulf South Pipeline at its two city gate metering stations, which are located in Bay Minette and Gateswood. Natural Gas is a vital component of Rivieras supply of energy. It is one of the cleanest, safest, and most useful of all energy sources.
Unlike some fossil fuels, however, natural gas is clean burning and emits lower levels of potentially harmful byproducts into the air. We require energy constantly, to heat our homes, cook our food, and generate our electricity. It is this need for energy that has elevated natural gas to such a level of importance in our society, and in our lives. Riviera Utilities has firm gas purchase contracts with BP Prior Energy and also receives some locally produced gas. The Gas Department directly serves customers in Foley, Magnolia Springs, Summerdale, Elberta, Miflin, Gulf Shores, Silverhill and Loxley. Additionally, Riviera supplies wholesale natural gas to the municipalities of Robertsdale, and Clark/Mobile Counties Gas District in Orange Beach Alabama.
