Who Are We?
Great Basin Gas Transmission Company (Great Basin), a wholly owned subsidiary of Southwest Gas Corporation (Southwest Gas), is a natural gas transmission company subject to the jurisdiction of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Paiute Pipeline Company changed its name to Great Basin Gas Transmission Company on September 1, 2021.
In 1963, Southwest Gas brought gas into northern Nevada by constructing a new natural gas transmission line from the Idaho-Nevada border southwesterly across the northern tier of the State to the Carson City/Reno-Sparks area as well as Lake Tahoe. Along the way, mining and farming communities from Elko to Yerington were converted to natural gas service.
Great Basin currently operates approximately 898-mile transmission system extending from the Idaho-Nevada border to the Nevada-California border. The Paiute system also includes an LNG peak shaving facility near Lovelock, Nevada.
