  • Smell Gas? To report a gas or carbon monoxide emergency, or if a pipeline is struck (even if no gas leak has occurred) call the National Gas Emergency Service 24 hours a day on 0800 111 999 (calls are recorded and may be monitored).

  • UK Gas Distribution

  • The National Gas UK distribution business is responsible for looking after 82,000 miles of pipeline, and delivers gas to around 11 million domestic, industrial and commercial customers.

    We don't sell gas but we make sure it is piped to you in a safe and efficient way. The companies that do sell you gas are gas suppliers. You should contact your gas supplier if you have any questions about:

    • buying gas
    • your gas bill
    • your meter reading, or
    • problems with your meter.

    You can find the phone number of your gas supplier on your gas bill or statement. If you don't have a bill or statement you can find out the name of your gas supplier by calling 0870 608 1524.

    We provide the National Gas Emergency Service. This is open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Emergency calls are free of charge, although some mobile phone operators may charge you.
