Looking for compensation?

To make sure we deliver a great service to customers, our regulator, Ofgem, sets performance standards. These are known in the industry as our Guaranteed Standards of Performance.

If we fail to meet these standards, customers are entitled to compensation.

The standards cover:

  • Restoring your gas supply
  • Reinstatement (filling the holes after our work)
  • Notification about planned works which will interrupt your gas supply
  • Gas connections/alterations/disconnections
  • Provision of alternative cooking/heating facilities for priority domestic customers
  • Response to complaints

We work hard to ensure that we always deliver the very highest levels of customer service. However, if you feel we haven’t come up to scratch you may be entitled to compensation.

On the occasions when we fail to live up to our high standards, we make automatic compensation payments to our customers via their gas supplier.

How much compensation can I claim?

Our Guaranteed Standards of Performance document sets out the details of each of our Guaranteed Standards of Performance and the compensation that you may be entitled to if we fail to meet those standards. Download our Guaranteed Standards of Performance.

If you have any questions please contact our Customer Care Team at customercare@northerngas.co.uk or call 0800 040 7766 and select option 4. We’ll provide you with as much information as possible, which you may then need to pass on to your energy supplier.

Want to make a claim for loss of business?

If you’ve lost money as a result of our work, you may be eligible to claim compensation.

All loss of business claims will be dealt with in accordance with the Gas (Street Works) (Compensation of Small Businesses) Regulations 1996.
