That what my Gas Utility used to repair my line. I also believe a trace wire is mandatory.

Polyethylene (PE) pipe has been in use for at least 20 years. It can only be used underground. Most gas companies are now using it for distribution piping because it is far superior to using steel underground.

Underground poly gas lines is how the utilities have been running services here forever. The mains were steel years ago and some still are but even those are run in poly now.

I ran into a buried copper gas supply line once that was crushed underground because the people drove their cars over where it was buried during the winter time. The compacted moist ground froze and flattened the pipe so that no gas would pass. Just a thought to consider if you live where you get frost in the ground.

Legal or not I don't like the idea of a copper gas line buried in the ground between buildings. Lightning loves good conductors. I use poly or nothing.
