Independent Gas Transporters (IGTs)
Independent Gas Transporters (IGTs) develop, own, operate and maintain local gas transportation networks. IGT networks are directly connected to the Gas Distribution Network (GDN), such as National Grid, via a Connected System Exit Point (CSEP) or indirectly to the GDN via another IGT. Although domestic, industrial and commercial premises are connected to IGT networks, the new housing market constitutes the largest share of the IGT market. There are ten organisations holding IGT licences, although only five of these own and operate transportation assets. Details of all IGT’s can be obtained from the Ofgem (the gas industry regulator) website.
Utility Infrastructure Providers (UIPs)
Utility Infrastructure Providers or UIPs design and construct gas (and other) infrastructure, on behalf of their customer, for National Grid and other Independent Gas Transporters (iGTs) to adopt for the remainder of its lifetime.
The UIP market consists of approximately 80 design and/or construction organisations. Some have the capability to design and complete the physical connection or design and undertake service pipe alterations and/or service pipe disconnections. Details of most UIPs can be obtained from the Gas Industry Registration Scheme (GIRS) which is managed by Lloyds Register.
