Bringing gas to you
We own most of the pipes which transport gas around Scotland, south and south east of England and into your homes. However, we do not own the gas. We look after the pipe up to the Emergency Control Valve (ECV), which is located before your meter and allows you to turn off gas in an emergency.
Your gas supplier
... owns the gas transported through our pipes, is responsible for the maintenance of your gas meter and for sending you bills for the gas you use in your home.
... are responsible for maintaining internal pipes leading from the meter to their gas appliances such as boilers, cookers and heaters, and for making sure all gas appliances in the home are checked and serviced annually. A Gas Safe™ registered engineer must be used to do any safety checks or work on internal gas pipes or appliances.
