Gas System Operations is responsible for the real-time operation and control of the gas National Transmission System (NTS) in Great Britain, and for facilitating efficient operation of the GB gas market. It operates the NTS in line with our Primary Gas Transporter Safety Case ensuring that pressure within the NTS is maintained within safe limits and that the quality of the gas we transport complies with the Gas Safety Management Regulations (GSMR).
System Operations delivers value for customers by providing required transmission capacity and flexibility when it is safe to do so, and provides them with critical information and data to allow them to make effective and efficient decisions for their businesses.
The team plays a key role in ensuring that we can deliver value from our gas transmission incentive schemes, which are designed to ensure we make the right risk-reward based decisions on behalf of customers, minimise our environmental impact, and optimise the utilisation of the National Transmission System.
The function is organised into four departments delivering: real-time control, optimisation of the network and commercial strategies, performance against incentives and commercial obligations, and the development of the processes and systems needed both now and in the future.
