ABSTRACT
The article deals with the plans announced by the British Office of Gas & Electricity Markets (Ofgem) for a new obligation on gas suppliers to address theft. Consultation was started by Ofgem on the obligation and industry schemes aimed at enhancing the rate of gas theft detection. The estimated value of stolen gas ranges from 64 million British pounds to 220 million British pounds per year. In 2010, gas theft was associated with two deaths and 36 injuries.
