Safety Precautions During Renovations
Before commencing any renovation works, please take note of the following:
The turn on and off of piped town gas supply can only be carried out by City Energy or its appointed agents.
Gas installation works can only be carried out by City Energy or a Licensed Gas Service Worker.
Any renovation works which may affect the integrity of the gas installation must comply with Regulation 16 of the Gas (Supply) Regulations. The works must not damage any exposed or concealed gas pipework. For condominiums, please obtain a layout plan from the estate management to ascertain the location of concealed gas pipes before any drilling or hacking of wall is carried out.
As an additional safety measure, you are advised to arrange with City Energy for a temporary termination of the gas supply before carrying out renovation works.

Periodic Inspection Programme for Gas Installations in Commercial Premises
This programme is administered by SP PowerGrid Ltd to ensure that gas continues to be supplied and used safely.
Premises owners/Building owners/MCSTs/Retail Consumers are required to engage a Licensed Gas Service Worker or Professional Engineer to inspect and certify that the gas installation in the premises is safe for use.
A Certificate of Fitness must also be submitted to SP PowerGrid Ltd, who will remind all relevant parties on the inspection and certification as the due date approaches.
Failure to comply in both instances may result in a termination of gas supply for safety reasons.
