We deliver gas to 2.7 million homes and businesses in the North East, Northern Cumbria and much of Yorkshire.
We don’t generate the gas, we transport it, through a vast network of underground pipes. During periods of peak demand, we transport four times as much energy as the electricity networks.
If you spot our engineers when you are out and about, chances are they are either replacing old gas mains with modern new ones (we’re putting more than 3,800 kilometres of new pipes in the ground by 2021) or carrying out emergency repairs.
As well as keeping our network in tip top condition, we also provide the region’s rapid response service for customers who smell gas at home or work.
If you smell gas, call the National Gas Emergency Line on 0800 111 999. One of our engineers will be out with you quickly, to keep you safe.
