Welcome to the Long Beach Gas & Oil Department

CHRISTOPHER GARNER, Department Director

Established in 1924, the natural gas utility under the Long Beach Gas & Oil Department (LBGO) provides service to approximately 500,000 residents and businesses in the cities of Long Beach and Signal Hill. Delivered through over 1,800 miles of LBGO pipelines, our natural gas is safely provided to your home to keep you warm in the winter months, cook your food, heat the water in your showers and baths, and dry your clothes. We quickly respond to your requests for service and are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for emergency response at (562) 570-2140. Our rates for gas services are comparable with Southern California gas utilities and historically have resulted in the lowest average residential gas bills in Southern California. As the citizens of Long Beach are also the owners of our gas utility, our revenues provide not only our gas services and maintenance of our pipeline system, but also are used to help pay for vital community services such as police, fire, parks, and library services.

CALL BEFORE YOU DIG - Dig Alert is a FREE service, call 811 or view website.

Damage prevention is a shared responsibility! Whether you are planning to do it yourself or hire a professional, smart digging means calling 811 before each job.

Homeowners often make risky assumptions about whether or not they should get their utility lines marked, but every digging job requires a call, even small projects like planting trees and shrubs. The depth of utility lines varies and there may be multiple utility lines in a common area. Digging without calling can disrupt service to an entire neighborhood, harm you and those around you and potentially result in fines and repair costs. Calling 811 before every digging job gets your underground utility lines marked for free and helps prevent undesired consequences.
