LPG Tank Installation Options

We offer a range of LPG storage solutions to suit your individual requirements and available space. We can install both above and below-ground tanks in a range of sizes and storage capacity.

The most common size of domestic tank is 1,410 litres which is suitable for most homes, although we are able to supply larger or smaller tanks should these be more appropriate for your needs.

Above-ground tanks:

A concrete base will need to be laid and a trench dug to your property. One of our qualified engineers will then install the tank and underground pipework to the property, where it will then be terminated with as isolation valve.

Below-ground tank

Below-ground tanks:

A below-ground tank may provide a great solution to maintaining the appearance of your garden by hiding the tank from view.  As the tank will be buried, all that will be visible is a green lid which is required to provide the delivery driver with access to the tank and for the maintenance of the valve arrangement.

As a customer, we would require you to excavate the hole in preparation for the installation of the LPG tank.  Again, a concrete base will be required, and either we can supply a pre-cast base or, alternatively, you can lay your own. We will be responsible for the installation of the underground pipework, from the tank to the property, where it will be terminated with an isolation valve.

Excavation guidance notes:

Buried vessels should not be sited in areas prone to flooding, and consideration should be given to the provision of drainage in areas of clay or water retaining soils. Other services, such as water, electricity, telecommunications, drainage etc. should not pass through the vessel excavation. The area must be checked to verify the absence of such hazards. Back-filling must be carried out with great care and in a controlled manner to ensure that the vessel, anchoring straps, service pipe, etc. are not damaged or strained. The back-fill must be carefully compacted underneath the vessel and at stages throughout the back-filling process to prevent voids and excessive settlement. Pea gravel or graded sand should be used for the back-fill.

A site visit will be required to discuss your options for location of the bulk LPG tank, the regulations explained in detail and the most suitable and convenient location agreed.

What our clients are saying

We have just had a delivery this morning. The driver is new and I just wanted you to know how efficient he was and very friendly. He told us about your new vehicle which will be able to access hard to reach properties if the weather is bad and the big tankers cannot get access. Mr S
We had an exceptionally busy period at the pub in summer and ran out of gas from a delivery which would normally have lasted much longer. I rang Northern Energy mid-morning when we discovered our situation and they delivered within 20 minutes! We were all very impressed by the speed and helpfulness of the service which got us out of a potentially very difficult situation. Lunch service went on as normal in our pub.
Thank you, Northern Energy!
Mrs R - Publican

Your telephone is answered quickly and in a friendly manner followed up with call/message of delivery date. Mrs B
My husband and I are very pleased with your overall service and have recommended your service to other people round about. We rate you 10. Many thanks Mrs B
Yes I would recommend you, I score 10. The 'PPP' keeps my tank topped up, no VAT to pay. A very good efficient firm with nice friendly delivery men. Thank you Mr W
Been with you now since 2005 would recommend you to anyone Mr W
Always good service from ring (a day before) to say delivery is on it's way to the tank being filled up, thanks guys! Mr T
Last year I recommended you to my neighbour and he is equally happy with your service. Mrs S
I have just recommended your company to a friend who's just moved into a new home and uses oil. I have given you 10 in ratings. Mr M
We find the whole service really easy & efficient Mrs M
We are new customers, but the one delivery we have had came on time. The driver was very friendly and quick with no mess. Very pleased and no need to go elsewhere! Mrs D
I have always been very happy with the service I've recieved from Northern Energy and in fact have got you 2 more customers in the village. The delivery men are always courteous and I think that goes a long way! Northern Energy get a five star rating from me. Mr C
I am pleased with your automatic top-up system. It saves me worrying about running out and presumably saves you money if you can top up a group of neighbouring customers in one delivery - so win-win. Mr D
We have been very impressed with the service received from Northern Energy. The team are always very friendly and always willing to help in any which way they can. If we are cancelling a delivery there are never any questions asked. Recently we had a new oil tank fitted and the oil was delivered within two days of being ordered (we had allowed up to 5 days). Mr K
As a customer I love the all inclusive package of oil and maintenance that you offer. As a second home owner, we never run out of oil like we do ‘at home’ because you keep us ‘topped up’. Mr C
