A message from our partners SGN   

SGN is delighted to partner with NFYFC this Farm Safety Week, to support the Farm Safety Isolation Challenge. Good luck to everyone involved, it’s so important to share what we’re all doing to improve the safety of ourselves and those around us.

SGN manages the network that distributes natural and green gas to 5.9 million customers across the south of England and in Scotland. SGN owns and operates 74,000km of gas mains, including high pressure (HP) pipelines, which are a critical part of our national infrastructure. As these pipelines run underground across the length and breadth of the country, it's inevitable that work will need to be carried out near them at times. 

The most common cause of incidents involving SGN’s gas network is damage by others. There’s a risk of damage whenever land, such as farming land, is disturbed. This includes excavation, ditching, drainage work, fence installation or anything else within the proximity of our pipelines. Not only is damaging a pipeline illegal, but the consequences can be catastrophic.
