National Gas launches gas import app

A new app that provides near real-time information on Britain’s gas supply has been launched by National Gas, which owns and operates the gas National Transmission System (NTS).
The app shows the overall supply mix and a geographical view of imports. It also shows an overall view of the demand split between export, power generation, industrial use, storage injection and export to the gas distribution networks.
However, the app cannot differentiate between gas from the UK continental shelf and imports from Norway. That is because the two sources share pipelines and entry points, and the producers can direct their gas supplies either to Norway or GB, depending on numerous factors. In future National Gas hopes to dissect these flows by mapping upstream data to gain more detailed understanding of the supply chain.
Jon Butterworth, CEO of National Gas, said: “Our app will be a powerful tool that offers data and insights into the gas system, filling a gap in the market for people looking to understand more about the role of our national gas network.
“Visibility of the scale of the national gas network will be particularly important as we look to repurpose our network to hydrogen as the country transitions to net zero.”
The 5000 mile NTS is currently used only for methane but National Gas said its vision is to repurpose large parts of the network to transport hydrogen or carbon dioxide.
