Founded in 1862, The Hong Kong and China Gas Company Limited (Towngas) is Hong Kong’s first public utility. Today, we are one of the largest energy suppliers in Hong Kong, operating with world-class corporate management and leading-edge business practices. For the past years, Towngas has grown with Hong Kong, evolving from the simple gas company supplying fuel for street lamps to our current leading position in the energy industry of mainland China and beyond.
A major reason for our success has been the reputation that we have established over the years, enabling us to win the trust of the people of Hong Kong. We supply town gas to over 1.9 million customers in Hong Kong and provide a full range of gas applications to cater to their needs. Expanding our business horizons in recent years, we have diversified our business into telecommunications, building services, engineering and new eco-energies, among many others.
Towngas made its foray into mainland China in 1994. Currently, we have more than 430 projects, including piped city-gas projects, upstream and midstream developments, water supply and urban waste utilisation projects, natural gas filling stations, as well as new energy exploration and utilisation ventures, across 27 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities.
