05 Piped Gas Services

Natural Gas 

The piped gas provided for domestic purposes and for commercial and industrial utilization is currently supplied primarily from gas fields in the British sectors of the North Sea, with additional supplies from other fields, eg. Morecambe Bay.

Substitute natural gas (SNG) is manufactured as a direct substitute for natural gas and as a means of providing additional gas to meet peak loads. It can be made from a range of feed stocks in a number of different types of plant. Feed stocks commonly used are liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and naphthas.
