Gas Transporters will arrange to install and connect a new connection, however, you will have to arrange to purchase your gas from a gas supplier, who is also responsible for the fitting of a gas meter. There are four Gas transporters and the areas they cover are listed below. There will be a charge and the gas transporter will recover those costs that it is reasonably expected to incur when providing a connection service - including cost of labour, materials, and any other expenses required to carry out the work.

Utility Infrastructure Provider (UIP)

A UIP will install your connection and ensure that it is connected to the gas network of a GT. You will have to arrange to purchase your gas from a gas supplier, who will arrange for the fitting of a gas meter. A list of EUA Members who are UIP’s can be found below

Moving a Gas Meter You should initially contact your energy supplier or the gas transporter for your area in order to arrange for your gas meter to be moved. The gas transporter will normally carry out the meter move rather than the supplier, which means you can approach the transporter direct as an alternative to contacting your supplier. However, in certain circumstances a Gas Safe Registered installer may be able to carry out a meter move.

Natural Gas Design, Engineering Consultancy, Construction & Commissioning. Natural Gas infrastructure work forms the core of our activities and we can complete all stages of the works from the design, planning and installation of any gas service up to 7bar (intermediate pressure) up to and including its adoption by the GT. Ancillary equipment such as Governors, Chatter-Boxes, Meters with associated Civil Engineering and Housings are also designed and installed as part of a turn-key package. Both Inlet and Outlet Mains and Services are catered for - our GIRS registration covering Inlet work and our Gas Safe Register (formerly CORGI) covering the Outlet work. LPG Design, Engineering Consultancy, Construction & Commissioning. LPG installations are an integral part of the business and pass through all stages from the design, planning and through to installation. LPG systems are installed under our Gas Safe Register (formerly CORGI) and our Teams hold the relevant qualifications for LPG installation works with general civil engineering works. Water, Engineering Consultancy, Construction & Commissioning. Our Water Industry Registration Scheme (WIRS) accreditation allows us to lay Mains and Services to the required standard for adoption by the Water Authorities. As part of our water installation work we offer a full, testing, swabbing, cleaning and chlorination service of the newly installed pipes - including the sampling and testing for water to verify that it is potable. Telecom and Electrical Infrastructure Installation, as part of Gas and Water Installations To complement our Gas and Water installation works we offer clients the installation of Telecom Infrastructure. This includes the installation of Duct, Box and Draw Cords to the required standard either 'Supply and Installation' or 'Installation of free-Issue Materials'.


Multi-Utility Ultimately for our client we believe that Multi-Utility offers a real benefit in both the economics of the works and the programme and progress of works on site. By using our Teams that hold both Gas and Water Qualifications we can offer an efficient service using common excavations and reducing the time on site. Organisation is also easier with only one point of communication for the utilities installation rather than usually having separate installers on site. Multi-Utility can include a combination of Gas, Water, Telecom and Electrical Duct works with associated Civil Engineering and Minor Builders Works. Trenchless Technologies We use modern trenchless technologies during the installation of utilities that gives key benefits to our clients and those who may be influenced by the installation. We use Direction Drill to reduce the impact upon the area where we are working whenever possible. For smaller diameter services impact-moling is used whenever possible. Under-Pressure Connections/ Fast-Cut Drill Service We are pleased to offer our clients an Under-pressure (fast-cut) Drilling Service, which can offer significant advantages when working to tight timescales - particularly when excavations are in highway sensitive areas. The Fast Cut Drill can be used upon PE and HDPE pipe and is available in most sizes of usual parent main and offtake/branch sizes. Morland Utilities is only one of a handful of companies to hold GIRS approval for this type of work and we have made significant investment in training and equipment for our teams.
