Residential Connections

Contact us

We own and manage many thousands of domestic connections across Britain.

We provide an independent utility network from a point of connection agreed with the incumbent Gas Transporter and Distribution Network Operator.

Single Property Connections
If you have a new property that requires connection to an existing EAN or EAP network please contact us with the details of the property, connection voltage and maximum gas demand required. We will determine whether the network can accommodate your requirements and advise you on the next steps. Please be aware we can only provide a connection if the local electricity infrastructure is operated by EAN or EAP.


What to do in an emergency – Gas

Go to Priority Services

To report a smell of gas, a loss of gas supply or a concern regarding the safety of gas equipment, including concerns about carbon monoxide, immediately contact the national gas emergency free phone number on 0800 111 999 and follow the guidance below:

  • Call the National Gas Emergency Service Provider on 0800 111 999. They will record your details and offer advice depending on the circumstances.
  • Turn off or isolate the gas supply, if it is safe to do so.
  • Extinguish all naked flames and remove potential sources of ignition.
  • Open all doors and windows to ventilate the area.
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment, including switching lights on or off.
  • At access points to the property, you are advised not to operate any electrical security entry/exit systems.

Where the National Gas Emergency Service Provider receives a report of a smell of gas or other gas emergency, the nominated regional Emergency Service Provider will endeavour to attend site within one or two hours, depending on the nature of the reported emergency. This service operates 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

The nominated Emergency Service Provider representative will always make the gas supply safe, when called to a suspected gas escape. However, the emergency service provided does not cover repairs to appliances or installation pipe work (after the meter) that cannot be completed within 30 minutes. The engineer will explain what course of action you need to take next if your supply cannot be restored.

When you report a gas emergency to the National Gas Emergency Service Provider please make them aware if you or anyone living with you is:

  • Deaf or Hard of Hearing
  • Disabled or difficulties with mobility
  • Blind or partially sighted
  • Under 5 years old
  • Chronically sick
  • Of pensionable age

While disruption to electricity and gas supply is very rare, we will ensure that anyone registered with the service is informed in advance of any planned interruptions and is proactively contacted during an unexpected outage.
