Is Florida City Gas a subsidiary of Florida Power & Light?
TREASURE COAST Florida City Gas announced its sale to NextEra Energy, the parent company of Florida Power and Light, in an email to consumers on June 14. Many customers were taken aback by this, as they had been focused on FPL’s acquisition of Vero Electric.
Southern Company, the parent company of Florida City Gas, first announced the sale in a press release.
With 3,700 miles of natural gas pipelines, Florida City Gas supplies roughly 108,000 natural gas consumers in Miami-Dade, Brevard, Martin, St. Lucie, and Indian River counties.
What exactly is city gas?
Methane, also known as “natural gas,” is the primary component of city gas. In Japan, city gas is delivered to your home via underground pipes with branches that connect to your property, similar to how electricity and water are delivered. Because such infrastructure is costly to construct and maintain, only major cities are connected to city gas.

Where does Florida obtain its gasoline?
Although Florida lacks major natural gas deposits, it does produce a modest amount of natural gas, which comes from the same sources that produce crude oil.
97 The Jay Field in the Florida Panhandle produces almost all of the state’s natural gas, with the majority of the gas being reinjected into the oil zones to maintain reservoir pressures and boost oil output. 98 As a result, only between 5% to 15% of the state’s natural gas gross withdrawals are sold. 99 Florida’s yearly natural gas production peaked at over 52 billion cubic feet in 1978, accounting for less than 0.3 percent of total US production at the time, but then rapidly fell over the next three decades. In 2012, production increased to more than one-third of the previous high point for the state, but then fell back to less than one-tenth of the 1978 level in 2020. 100 Although economically recoverable natural gas reserves may exist offshore in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, exploratory drilling in state and federal seas in the eastern Gulf is prohibited, as it is with crude oil. 101,102
Major interstate pipelines deliver approximately all of Florida’s natural gas from the Gulf Coast region. Natural gas is brought into Florida by pipelines from Alabama and Georgia. 103,104,105 One undersea pipeline spans the Gulf of Mexico for 745 miles, connecting the Mississippi and Alabama border with central Florida. 106,107 The majority of natural gas distributed to Florida residents is delivered to the electric power industry. Electricity generation will account for 87 percent of the state’s total natural gas consumption in 2020. The industrial sector consumed around 8% of state deliveries, while the commercial sector consumed about 4%. Only approximately 1% was used in the residential sector, where natural gas is used as a major home heating fuel by fewer than 1 in 20 families. Vehicle fuel accounts for a fairly modest portion of the total. 108,109 In Florida, there are fewer than 30 public compressed natural gas automobile fuelling facilities. 110
Where does Miami’s gas come from?
Following a ransomware cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline last Friday, huge queues at gas pumps have formed around the Eastern Seaboard, and fuel prices have begun to rise.
The 5,000-mile pipeline transports around 45 percent of all gas and fuel to the East Coast, but not to South Florida.
Dr. Eduardo del Valle, a chemical engineer and gas industry expert, remarked, “We don’t rely on the pipeline.”
In reality, ships in Port Everglades and Port Miami provide 90% of the gas for South Florida. Shortages in Miami-Dade and Broward are the result of panic buying rather than the pipeline shutdown.
Is FPL a gas company?
Natural gas is a safe, domestic fuel source that is plentiful in the United States. The cost of generating electricity with imported oil is around five times that of generating electricity with natural gas. We continue to invest in domestic natural gas rather than imported oil to help keep money in the United States. And those investments are in natural gas-fired energy centers that supply clean, reliable power while also helping to keep our normal household costs low.
We’ve removed coal-fired power facilities and replaced several of our older oil-fired power plants with new natural gas-fired units over the last decade. And we’re not going to stop there!
The Okeechobee Clean Energy Center was created to help satisfy Florida’s growing population and economy’s energy needs. This new energy center is one of the world’s cleanest and most efficient of its kind.
A new state-of-the-art natural gas power plant is also being planned to replace the aging Lauderdale Plant in Broward County. The FPL Dania Beach Clean Energy Center, when finished, will run on clean, domestic natural gas and create enough energy to power about 250,000 homes.
FPL customers are saving billions of dollars on gasoline by using home natural gas instead of imported oil to generate electricity. Customers have saved approximately $10 billion on fuel since 2001 because to FPL’s efficient natural gas power facilities. Customers will continue to save money on fuel prices as more efficient, greener power plants come online in the coming years.
