Hard gas line

I purchased a new Gas Stove and the Hard Gas Line that is coming up through the basement is too long for the new stove. In the old one it had plenty of dead space behind the oven. With the new one, the exisitng pipe will not allow the stove to sit agains the wall properly b/c the pipe is in the way. How can I lower the hard pipe? It is approx 13" sticking out of the floor and in the basement the straight run is connected to an elbow? Is it possible to disconnect the pipet and the elbow, cut it to size and have it rethreaded? I appreciate any tips or ideas so I can get my new stove up and running properly. Thanks

You most likely need to turn you gas off at the meter. Turn that nipple out (13"+ whatever is below) Go to home store and get shorter nipple. Use pipe dope and dont cross thread. A gas valve should be above floor for the appliance..
