We distribute natural gas – energy that is essential to our daily lives. It guarantees warmth and comfort at home. It drives Czech industry, business, and institutions. We are part of our country’s critical infrastructure.
Today, you have the choice of a wide range of offers from dozens of gas suppliers. We do not sell gas. Our role is different. We make sure that the natural gas from these various suppliers gets to you, the final customer, safely and reliably though our pipelines.
We issue invoices for the gas that is consumed, we do meter readings and provide service to gas suppliers. We run an on-line portal which they use to deal with all their requirements related to the purchase and sale of gas.
For the general public, we provide connection to the distribution network. We install and remove gas meters. We handle customer transfers and technical changes at the connection point. We have a 1239 emergency hotline.
We manage 65 thousand kilometres of gas pipelines in all the regions of the Czech Republic except Prague and the South Bohemia Region.
We have an approximately 80% share of domestic gas distribution.
We reliably and safely supply natural gas to more than 2.3 million customers.
Our Distribution Coverage
We cover all the regions of the Czech Republic except for Prague and the South Bohemia Region.
There is always only one gas network in a given area. You can choose your gas supplier, but not the distributor. For that reason, the prices we charge for our services is set by an independent institution – the Energy Regulatory Office.

We embrace these trends. They set a new path for us to follow, and we are setting out on this new journey. We stand on our own two feet.
