Information on gas suppliers is held by the transporters. If they are provided with the address and/ or meter serial number the transporter should be able to confirm who the registered supplier is and provide their contact number. The meter serial number is usually located on a sticker attached to the meter.
Transporters are the only organisations that can confirm who the gas supplier is for a specific property. For the vast majority of consumers, gas is transported by National Grid, Northern Gas Networks, Scotland Gas Networks, Southern Gas Networks or Wales and West Utilities. A consumer can contact the Meter Number Helpline on 0870 608 1524 to find out who is supplying their property.
Some consumers are supplied via an Independent Gas Transporter (IGT). A consumer can contact the Meter Number Helpline who identify the IGT.
Contact details for each IGT can be found at the IGT UNC website
