** Mains gas and Towns gas

Guernsey and Jersey in common with the United Kingdom and the Isle of Man have LPG supplies, but where they differ, is that they do not have any Natural gas installations. The gas used in the mains distribution system is a manufactured LPG/Air mixture (otherwise known as mains gas). The mains gas consumers are served by a network of underground mains emanating from a LPG/Air production plant, where the gas is processed, constantly monitored and checked for quality and purity.

Gas Installations in the Isle of Man are similar to those found in Guernsey and Jersey; however the Isle of Man is currently undergoing a gas conversion programme, whereby many of its LPG/Air installations on its Towns gas network are being converted to burn Natural gas. There are also some 6,000 installations still using LPG/Air. The plan is to convert the existing LPG/Air installations to Natural gas by 2012.
