What we do in the gas industry

At Cadent our job is to connect customers to the gas they use – whether its homes, factories, shops or businesses. We work with other companies to ensure gas is available when and where it’s needed.

We own, run and maintain four gas networks in England ensuring that the gas pipes beneath the ground bring gas to your property safely.

Think of them as A-roads beneath the ground – to keep the energy flowing. We are responsible for the gas whilst it is being transported.

We don't sell gas. The gas we transport is owned by your gas company.

Are our pipe upgrades affecting you?

We look after the pipes that bring gas to your home or business. It's our job to:

  • Fix leaks and deal with gas emergencies
  • Connect new homes to the network
  • Upgrade old pipes to keep gas flowing to your homes long into the future

Much of this work happens in the street or your home and we want to help you understand a bit more about how you might be affected.
