Phoenix Natural Gas Ltd owns and operates the gas distribution network in the Greater Belfast area in Northern Ireland. Parties have the ability to have their own gas supplies transported through this distribution system to consumers.
To ensure transparency and fairness for all Shippers on its system Phoenix publishes a Network Code which details the rights and obligations of both Phoenix as the operator of the system and each gas supplier transporting gas using the Phoenix Network.
The management of the Network Code processes is the responsibility of the Transportation Services Department within Phoenix who provide 24 hours per day cover for pipeline activities. Any party wishing to supply gas to consumers in Greater Belfast must accede to the Phoenix Distribution Network Code.
The Network Code is also supported by a suite of Side Agreements. Copies of the Side Agreements are provided by Phoenix to a Gas Supplier wishing to enter the Greater Belfast gas market as part of the Network Code accession process.
Copies of the Distribution Network Code can be downloaded from this website.
In addition the current applicable Transportation Charges for use of Phoenix’s gas network is also provided on this website.
If you require information on accession to the Network Code or on any further information on Transportation Services you should contact the Transportation Services Manager here in Phoenix. The contact details are shown below
