Our Business

Southern Company Gas (formerly AGL Resources) has safely served customers with safe, efficient, reliable natural gas for more than 150 years. Today, we continue to build upon our reputation as a leader in the natural gas industry.

Our business segments consist of natural gas distribution operations, retail operations, wholesale services and midstream operations.

Distribution Operations
This business unit features seven natural gas utilities that safely deliver clean, efficient natural gas to nearly 4.5 million customers and is the largest component of our business. These utilities construct, manage and maintain intrastate natural gas pipelines, distribution facilities and peaking and storage facilities. We also respond to and repair gas leaks and other requests for service and are responsible for meter reading. And while most of our customers buy their natural gas directly from the local utilities, some of our customers in Illinois and New Jersey and all of our customers in Georgia buy natural gas from their choice of retail marketer due to deregulation in these states.

Retail Operations
Combining the expertise of a national supplier with the local knowledge and understanding of a regional provider, the companies in this business segment market natural gas and related home services, such as appliance repair and line protection plans, to customers in our utility footprint and beyond. Value-minded customers rely on retail operations for dependable, competitively priced natural gas, other related services and outstanding customer care. Learn more >

Wholesale Services
Energy companies and wholesale customers – whether they are a utility marketer, producer, gas-fired power generator, large commercial or industrial company – need to take advantage of every competitive edge, including energy procurement and asset management. AGL Resources' family of companies offers expertise and market knowledge to help wholesale clients manage their natural gas assets and requirements more effectively. Learn more >

Midstream Operations
Gas storage facilities play a vital role in ensuring reliable supply. With proximity to interstate and intrastate pipelines, natural gas storage facilities provide an efficient and dependable supply of natural gas to consumers, businesses and utilities. Stored gas is particularly valuable when production or delivery is compromised, such as in the aftermath of a hurricane. Additionally, building storage inventory levels in the low demand summer months ensures sufficient supplies are available for the winter heating season. Learn more >

Energy Services
The AGL Energy Services program provides clients with demand-side solutions that enable them to use energy more efficiently and supply-side solutions that facilitate increased use of green energy sources. The AGL Energy Services program teams up with government agencies (including the military), schools, hospitals, and large commercial and industrial clients throughout to provide utility-related efficiency and enhancement programs that pay for themselves over time.

Liquefied Natural Gas and Propane
Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and propane plays an important role in AGL Resources' strategy to serve customer demands. AGL Resources owns and operates five LNG peak-shaving facilities and three propane-air plants. Learn more >
