Gas Supplies being Interrupted

The big day for interruptions was in fact 31st January 2006 with almost 3 GWh of interruption. Although peak demand so far was on 1st Feb there were fewer interruptions.

These interruptions are "business as usual" interruptions where people who have interruptible contracts are interrupted.

The problem in London was not about gas supply, but instead about a problem with a water main. The impact of shutting off 1,500 domestic consumers shows the importance of security of supply, however.

Weather is expected to get milder. Today's demand is predicted to be over 400 mcm, but may tail off at the end of the gas day (the gas day ends at 6am).
