Reticulated LPG networks

Genesis owns two reticulated LPG networks (Piped LPG) in the South Island: Dunedin and the Faringdon development. The reticulated networks operate from large LPG storage facilities that allow the LPG to vaporise and enter the reticulation system, through underground pipes to households and businesses. Before starting any excavation work within these areas, please visit here to organise the correct documentation. You can also contact BeforeUDig, which is an online service provided by an external supplier which provides information on any proposed dig site.

In case of an emergency, please read this important information and contact us immediately.
