The Great Taipei Gas Corporation, established in 1964, is responsible for providing natural gas supplies to the city of Taipei, and currently has over 380,000 customers. The business area covers the Song-Shan, Sin-Yi, Da-An, Da-Tong, Wan-Hua, Zhong-Zheng and Zhong-Shan districts, plus 2 counties, Fu-Hua and Min-Shen, from the Shi-Lin district.
 
In recent years, to comply with the overall development plans for Taipei, ensuring public safety, and delivering a high standard of living comfort, Taipei gas has continuously sought out and introduced new techniques/equipments from Europe, America and Japan. While actively investing to improve public safety and expanding gas supply/storage facilities, it also signed a technical exchange agreement with Osaka Gas (Japan) in an effort to raise construction quality and promote Japan-Taiwan cooperation within the natural gas industry.
 
The Taipei Gas office building incorporates a gas co-generation system, making it the first office building powered by natural gas within the country. The SCADA system (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition System), which links 33 earthquake detectors within 10 designated gas supply zones, enables 24hr supervision on gas pressure, gas flow, gas leakage and access control for all regulator stations. When an earthquake over magnitude 6 occurs, abnormal emergency shutoff of valves, or in cases of any other operational irregularities, signal feedback will be sent to the Nei-Hu base control center and can be rectified in a timely manner. In a large scale earthquake scenario, gas supplies can be swiftly shutoff, either automatically or remotely, therefore reducing the risks of secondary disasters and ensuring public safety.
 
To achieve operational diversification, Taipei gas utilized German optical fiber technology, spreading then within existing gas pipelines, accomplishing a combined 97km backbone network. Taipei Gas is the first approved company to obtain the special permit of the first category rental license from the Directorate General of Telecommunications, Ministry of Transportation and Communications among the domestic gas utilities.
