We normally have to have a 12" separation from any gas line buried with our electrical conduit. You would have to check with your electrical utility company, or The AHJ=Authority Having Jurisdiction--which may be your electrical inspector.

Do not bury your counduit, until you get an "ok".

I should add, the national electrical Safety code (NESC) may have some information on the topic, but they normally gear towards the utility co.
