Only a suggestion, but if in doubt use a snap-cutter. In a well ventillated area, methane volatility is a low risk hazard with regards to old sanitary sewer pipe. if you think there might be gases present,you need to wear a proper breathing mask === === I think he meant gases inside the pipe, not in the room the pipe is in.
