Our Business

Who We Are

Indigo Pipelines is an independent, UK based, public gas transporter. We are regulated by Ofgem, and are responsible for safely transporting gas through our networks to over 130,000 residential and commercial properties across the UK.

Indigo Pipelines does not sell gas to consumers but ensures it is safely and efficiently delivered to the end customer on behalf of gas suppliers.

Indigo Pipelines was established by SSE plc as SSE Pipelines in 1992. Since then it has grown its network of connections throughout the UK. On 1 September 2014 the company was acquired by the Environmental Capital Fund, an infrastructure fund managed by Scottish Equity Partners LLP.

Under this structure, Indigo Pipelines continues to provide the high standards of safety, service and performance that have ensured repeat business with a large number of satisfied developers and housebuilders.

Operations & Network Administration

Indigo Pipelines will continue to benefit from its close links with SSE plc (SSE), the FT-SE 100 utility company.

The operations and network administration of Indigo Pipelines’ network assets have been contracted to SSE Utility Solutions Limited (registered in England and Wales No. 06894120 and whose registered office is 55 Vastern Road, Reading, Berkshire, RG1 8BU) which trades under the name of SSE Enterprise Utilities. SSE Enterprise Utilities is a member of the SSE Group. SSE is a major utility with many years of experience building and operating public gas networks. SSE Utility Solutions is responsible for maintaining our network and employing the resources required to address any problems. Click below for further information on SSE Utility Solutions.

Indigo Pipelines is one of the fastest growing independent gas transporters in the UK. Working in partnership with SSE, we are able to adopt new gas connections from developers and house-builders throughout the country. If you are interested in finding out more about new connections, disconnections or variations please see our Connections section.
