Gas

Singapore - Gas


Gas and water services are also set up through Singapore Power. As the Market Support Licensee in the utility market, SP Services provides one-stop metering and billing services to all households and businesses in Singapore and are the billing agent for utility service providers such as PUB for water and CityGas for gas charges. If there is a gas emergency, call 1800 752 1800.

Gas prices are currently 21.36¢ per unit. An HDB 1-room location averages about 60 units per month while a landed house averages around 163.

The average utility bill for a house with gas is slightly more than a house that does not have gas. For instance, in 2012, an HDB 2-room flat saw an average of S$91 in the month of October for their utility bill. On the other hand, an HDB 2-room flat without gas saw a bill of S$77. To look at more average household utility bills, visit the Singapore Power website at http://www.singaporepower.com.sg/irj/portal/ourservices

There are certain rules and restrictions for using gas. For instance, natural gas, town gas and LPG are different types of gas that have different composition and characteristics. As a result, gas appliances that have been designed for a particular type of gas can’t be used for other types of gas unless they have been modified. If you are interested in receiving a copy of the Gas Act rules and regulations then you contact the following company for more information:

Toppan Leefung Pte Ltd
1 Kim Seng Promenade
#18-01/06
Great World City
East Tower
Singapore 237994
Tel: 6826 9691

If you have a problem with your gas, then knowing the difference between a service worker who is restricted and one who is not is important for your safety. A non-restricted gas service worker may alter, renew, fix, construct, and repair gas pipes and fittings. They may also maintain, repair, install, and test gas appliances and turn on the gas supply if the operating pressure isn’t more than 30 mbars.

If a gas service worker is restricted then they may only maintain, test, repair, and install gas appliances and install or remove meters if the operating pressure is less than 30 mbars.
