.

Information we'll need:


Full address of the property where the work is needed.
Diameter of the gas pipe being disconnected.

Points to consider


Before you start any work around a gas supply, you need to find out whether it will affect the safety of the pipe. If so, you must arrange for the pipe to be disconnected.

Work that could affect gas pipelines:

  • Demolition of property - we always need to isolate all gas pipes outside the demolition area.
  • Refurbishment / modernisation of property - if it's a major refurb, the gas standpipe may be at risk, especially if you're removing internal walls.
  • Extensions to property - if you're building an extension over the existing gas supply and it can't be relocated, we will need to isolate the pipe.

Applying for a gas disconnection


We'll charge you for isolation work. Once the work is done, it'll be permanent. When the service has been isolated, you will need to request a new service if you want to use gas again.
