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 Guaranteed Standards of Performance (GSOP).

If we fail to meet these standards, customers are entitled to compensation. You can find out more information about all this in our Standards of Service.

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 – from restoring your gas supply to providing you with a prompt quote for a new connection to our network – you may be entitled to compensation.  This could include compensation for damage to your property or personal injury where you think NGN may be responsible.

On the occasions when we fail to live up to our high standards, we make automatic compensation payments to our customers, with exception of two GSOP standards – Heating and cooking facilities for Priority Services customers (GSOP 3) and Providing advance notice of a planned supply interruption (GSOP 13).  Below we set out how to claim payment if we fail to meet these standards.

How to claim

Heating and cooking facilities for Priority Services customers (GSOP 3)

If the gas goes off we know the impact can be greater for customers in vulnerable circumstances.

That’s why we have an obligation to provide customers on the Priority Services Register with free heating and cooking facilities (where needed) within four hours, if the gas goes off unexpectedly.

How much are you owed? 
If you are a Priority Services Customer and we fail to get cooking and heating facilities to you within four hours, you are entitled to a payment of £24 – but we believe in doing the best for customers and pay double the regulatory amount which means £48 for you if we fail this standard.

How to claim
Please email us on within three months of the gas interruption.

Providing advanced notice of a planned supply interruption (GSOP 13)
Sometimes we need to switch off the gas so we can carry out planned work safely – such as pipe replacements.

We recognise this can be inconvenient for customers, which is why we must give you at least five days advanced notice of an interruption to your supply. If we fail to do this, you are entitled to compensation.

How much are you owed? 
Because of our commitment to excellent customer service we pay double the industry regulatory payment if we do fail to meet the industry standards – that means £40 for domestic customers and £100 for business customers.

How to claim
Please email us on within three months of the gas supply interruption.


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.
