Gas supply in working order - Contact

8:11 am on 5 September 2010

Contact Energy advises people to check that gas pipes are properly connected to their home and that gas bottles are standing upright.

Managing director David Baldwin, says the gas supply was not affected by the magnitude 7.1 earthquake at 4.35am on Saturday and is safe to use.

He says crews have inspected all the main lines for leaks and the infrastructure supporting the city's gas supply is in working order.

Mr Baldwin says people should phone Contact Energy's customer service line if they can smell gas.
