Propane service line corrosion

I was just in basement and noticed the copper line that supplies the furnace has an area that is corroded and was wondering if it might become a leak issue. Not sure what has caused it as the basement is dry and line is attached to ceiling.

I would get a propane service company to look at it immediately because the cost of a service call is pale when compared to what could happen if a leak does occur.
Just curious, the picture seems to show the gas line ( copper tube) being supported by a piece of wood attached to a wall. A section of the wood and copper tubing appears black like from a fire. Is this what you are calling corroded?

Yes that is the spot. The picture is turned wrong way as the pipe is actually attached to the ceiling drywall. There was a powdery residue on pipe that exposed the dark spot when rubbed off. I did some reading about imported (corrosive) drywall that can react to soft metals, however, house was built before this arrived to states.
