If you want to connect to our gas network, you first need to know whether the gas pipe connected to your property is 'live' - in other words, ready to be used.

    A 'live or dead' check is a free physical check where one of our engineers determines if your pipe is ready or whether more work needs to be done.

    • If your pipe is already live, you can contact a supplier of your choice to install a meter and then start using gas.

    • If your pipe is not ready for use ('dead') and you would like gas installed, you can apply for a new connection.

    • If your pipe is live but you don’t want to use gas, you can apply to have it disconnected.

  • We manage the gas network throughout Scotland and the south of England. To see if  SGN is your network operator, type your postcode into the box below:

    Yes, this postcode is within our operating regions.

    The property is outside of SGN's operating regions but energynetworks.org may help you identify the right contact.

    Please note that this check only informs you if SGN covers your postcode area, it does not inform you if there are gas assets at your location, in particular if you are on or near the boundary.
