We're proud to keep the North of England cooking on gas!
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.
We own and maintain more than 37,000km of gas pipes – enough to stretch from Leeds to Sydney, Australia and back again!
We cover an area that stretches from the Scottish border to South Yorkshire and has coastlines on both the east and west sides of the region.
Our patch contains a mixture of large cities such as Newcastle, Sunderland, Leeds, York, Hull and Bradford and beautiful rural areas including North Yorkshire and Cumbria.
We supply gas to around 2.7 million households and businesses – that’s around 6.7 million individuals.
