National Grid Gas Transmission

We are We are National Grid Gas Transmission (NGGT) and we are proud to own, manage and operate the high-pressure gas national transmission system (NTS) in Great Britain (GB).

Our network is a gas superhighway that connects our nation; we balance supply and demand on a day-to-day basis to make gas available when and where it’s needed. We develop, maintain, and operate an economic and efficient network and we facilitate competition in the supply of gas in GB to keep energy costs to consumers as low as possible.

We are at the heart of the energy system as the combined gas transmission system operator (TSO), undertaking both the gas transmission owner and system operator roles. Our network includes pipes and compressor stations. We connect production to the distribution systems, as well as to large, directly connected consumers. In GB, gas enters the transmission system through importation, reception terminals, storage facilities and interconnectors. From our Gas National Control Centre (GNCC), we meet changing customer needs by optimising the physical configuration of assets and using commercial tools.

Compressor stations located along the network play a vital role in keeping large quantities of gas flowing through the system to areas of demand. The network must be kept constantly in balance and meet customer requirements, which is achieved by buying, selling and using stored gas.

Lives, businesses and industry today rely on natural gas. Over time, there will be changes in gas usage as we move to net zero, but one thing remains the same; we need to ensure that the future decarbonised energy system, is safe, reliable, efficient and delivers value to our customers. Our innovation activities are at the centre of this challenge, so join us at ENIC 2021 to find out more.
