Just waiting for the insurance company to say smoking on the job negates payout on gas related incidents

The other point is that pipelines are provided with 3 types of warning on location and depth.

Above ground a system of concrete posts along the line of sight of the buried pipe showing depth, size and what is in the pipe.

Next at a fixed depth is a tape with words gas or oil etc pipe.

Further down is a layer of cement/concrete slabs at a fixed height above the pipe.

To damage a buried gas pipeline means all 3 have been ignored.
