Minimum distance, gas pipe to electric receptacle?

The title says it all (almost). In upgrading kitchen base cabinets, we have to move the receptacle for the gas stove. the wiring is not a problem- the move is less than 2 feet. However, the planned new location is centered 6 inches from the vertical gas pipe for the stove. The top of the pipe, with the shutoff for the stove is 14 inches higher than the top of the receptacle.
Is there any code or safety problem with having the receptacle that distance from the pipe?
Thanks in advance.

Other than being a bit inconvenient, I don't think it matters. A shut off valve must be at the location of the appliance by code. Usually its at or near floor level and will normally tuck slightly under the sheet metal of the stove if it protrudes out.
