Investment in the Northern Ireland network

We have invested GB£200 million in the Northern Ireland network, with the construction of gas networks linking 10 towns to the upstream network in Scotland. Our activities in Northern Ireland are carried out by a wholly owned subsidiary of Ervia, GNI (UK) Limited. GNI (UK) Limited, registered number 2827969 is registered in England and Wales at 20 Farringdon Street, London, EC4A 4AB.

In February 2002, GNI (UK) (formally BGE (Northern Ireland) was awarded a Gas Conveyance Licence by the Northern Ireland Authority for Energy Regulation (NIAER), to build, own and operate two natural gas transmission pipelines in Northern Ireland. The North-West gas pipeline, from Carrickfergus to Londonderry, serves Coolkeeragh power station in Derry and enabled the development of gas networks along the route. The South-North gas pipeline runs from Gormanston, in County Meath, to Ballyclare, Co. Antrim, where it links into the North-West pipeline. This pipeline created and all-island gas transmission network, connecting the grids north and south for the first time.
