Oil & Gas Producers Underground Protection Service (OGPUPS)

Ohio is oil and gas country!

Pump Jack

There are more than 63,000 active oil and gas wells located in Ohio. A large percentage of those wells produce natural gas and thereby utilize underground pipelines. As such, oil and gas producers in Ohio own and operate thousands of miles of natural gas pipelines related to their business.

The oil and gas industry is concerned about your safety.

According to the Ohio Revised Code, Chapter 3781.25-.32, anyone starting an excavation project MUST contact the Ohio Underground Protection Service Agencies by dialing 8-1-1, at least 48 hours but no more than 10 working days (excluding weekends and legal holidays) before beginning ANY digging project.

Reach us directly at 614-715-2984 to have oil & natural gas lines marked before you dig.

For further safety also call:
