Yes I try to call them at 505-697-3335 or 888-NM-GAS-CO but impossible to have a real person.
87% that mean that it's can have 13% of toxic stuff.

Which toxic stuff are you worried about? Here is something for you to go through. It specifically relates to the Permian Basin and San Juan Basin where most of NM Gas company NatGas comes from. http://geoinfo.nmt.edu/publications/...w%20Mexico.pdf

See: NaturalGas.org

You may notice an H2S smell in natural gas delivered to your burner. That is odorant injected into natural gas. It is generally mercaptan, and will likely contain various forms of sulfides.

Yes that what everybody said but personally I'm not convince.
Some people don't have the sense of smell very developed.
H2S will destroy your nerve in the noise who manage smell.
For example this guy didn't see it coming: Santa Fe and an unexpected danger
Also I'm not sure that in a case of chronically poisoning to H2S there is enough concentration for be smell.
Anyway this convince me to buy a H2S meter.
