Mutual Energy operates a significant gas transmission business which includes the Scotland – Northern Ireland pipeline (SNIP) and the Belfast Gas Transmission pipeline from Islandmagee to Belfast. To date all of Northern Ireland’s natural gas used has come across the SNIP. Mutual Energy has achieved 100% availability on these two important assets.
The gas transmission market in Northern Ireland is operated by the Gas Market Operator for Northern Ireland (GMO NI), on behalf of the four gas transmission operators (TSOs) in Northern Ireland. GMO NI provides a ‘one stop shop’ for the commercial activities of the TSOs.
