This section of our website supports our IGT/UIP customers. Here you will find out more about the steps you need to take to register to make connections to our network and the various processes we need to follow with you.

Registering with us

Third Party organisations wishing to lay gas infrastructure and transfer ownership to Cadent, or lay infrastructure on behalf of Independent Gas Transporters to connect to Cadent's network, must register with us as a UIP.

To register with us, please complete this form and then email it to us.
 

Fast-track connections

An independent gas transporter (IGT) or utility infrastructure provider (UIP) can submit a fast track request when the requirement of the site falls within the scope of the standard pressure matrix available in TSPNP14e appendices (please see supporting documents).

This process can also be used when the IGT or UIP has received a valid land enquiry response whereby reinforcement has not been identified.

The only exception to this process is that if the site contains a compressor, CHP or booster the full quotation request process must be followed.

Fast-track Standard Administration Charges (excluding VAT)

IGT £113 £101 £68
UIP (<63mm diameter) £134 £122 £89

Quotations

You can submit a quotation request when:

  • the requirement of the site falls outside of the standard pressure matrix
  • you have received a valid land enquiry response where reinforcement has been identified
  • the site contains a combined heating plant, booster or compressor.
