Business - Gas: UK 2011 gas demand at lowest level since 1995-DECC

Warm weather and reduced utility consumption meant that UK gas demand in 2011 was at its lowest level since 1995, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) said on Thursday.

"UK gas demand was at its lowest level since 1995, due to a combination of milder weather and reduced use by generators," DECC said in its provisional 2011 UK Energy Statistics data report.

DECC also said that gas imports exceeded domestic production for the first time in 2011 due to a large increase in liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports.
