The GD23 Price Control will consider the plans of the three Gas Distribution Network operators: 

  •  Phoenix Natural Gas Limited which serves an areas to the east including Larne, Belfast and East Down. 
  •  firmus energy which covers the central area; and  
  •  SGN Natural Gas which recently began developing the gas network in the west. 

These companies currently operate under the GD17 Price Control which runs to the end of 2022.  

GD23 will begin on the 1 January 2023.  Our current proposal is that it will run for 6 years however we will consider feedback to this consultation document before finalising this decision.
