Our team aims to attend to all emergency calls within one hour, and all controlled gas leaks within two hours. A controlled gas leak is where the person reporting it has confirmed that the gas control valve serving the premises has been turned off and the smell of gas has gone. An uncontrolled gas leak covers all others.

Sometimes, our professionals will be sent to fix a leak that has been reported outdoors. Around a quarter of these turn out not to be gas leaks at all. Around 80% of the gas escapes we attend are inside buildings. That means the escape is related to internal pipes, a boiler, gas fire or other gas appliance.

How to detect a gas leak and what to do?

Gas leaks refer to a leak of natural gas from a pipeline or other containment into a living area or any other area where the gas should not be present. Because natural gas may explode when exposed to open flame or sparks, this situation poses life-threatening risks to people located close to the actual leak. In addition to causing fire and explosion hazards, leaking flammable gases can kill vegetation, including large trees, and release powerful greenhouse gases to the atmosphere.

Pure natural gas is colourless and odourless, and is composed primarily of methane. Unpleasant scents are usually added to assist in identifying leaks. This odour may be perceived as rotting eggs, or a faintly unpleasant skunk smell. Persons detecting the odours must evacuate the area and abstain from using open flames or operating electrical equipment to reduce the risk of fire and explosion.

Harm to Vegetation
Gas leaks which are too small to pose an explosive hazard may still affect vegetation, causing the decline and death of lawns or large shade trees. In addition to leaks from natural gas pipes, methane and other gases migrating from landfill garbage disposal sites can cause necrosis in grass, weeds, or trees. In some cases, leaking gas may migrate as far as 100 feet from the source of the leak to an affected tree.
Harm to Animals
Small animals and birds are more sensitive to toxic gases, including the methane and carbon monoxide present in natural gas. The expression “canary in a coal mine” derives from the historical practice of using a canary as an animal sentinel to detect toxic naturally-occurring coal gas.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Methane, the primary part of natural gas, is up to 120 times as potent as the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide. Thus, the release of unburned natural gas produces much stronger effects than the carbon dioxide that would have been released if the gas had been burned as intended.

Spotting a dry patch of grass in your yard is one of the many clues pointing to a potential gas leak. That’s why you should rely on all of your senses and look for one of the following

  1. A damaged connection to a gas appliance
  2. Dirt or water being blown into the air
  3. Dead or dying plants and vegetation near pipeline
  4. A fire or explosion near a pipeline
  5. Exposed pipeline after an earthquake, fire, flood or other natural disaster
Listen!
Unusual sounds, such as hissing, whistling or roaring near your gas line or gas appliances could very well be due to gas leaks.
Smell!
Natural gas has a very distinctive smell. Some people may not be able to smell the gas because they have a bad sense of smell. Or it could also be because the smell is being masked or hidden by other odours present in the location, such as cooking, damp, musty or chemical smells. In addition, certain conditions in pipe and soil can cause the smell to fade. The loss of odorant can make it fairly undetectable to the human nose.
