Residents in Keith and Huntly were left without a gas supply for the second time in a month yesterday.
SGN confirmed as of 9.15am today that issues with their network has been resolve and that customers could start using gas again.
The outage came just a month after “major disruption” left 4,500 homes in the area without gas heating and hot water for more than a day – during one of the coldest days of the year.
SGN has apologised to residents following this outage.
Scottish Conservative MSP for Aberdeenshire West, Alexander Burnett, said: “From the engineers to the community groups and emergency responders, everyone should be commended for their efforts during such difficult circumstances.
“The response highlights just how close-knit Huntly and the surrounding area is and it’s fantastic to see.
“It’s concerning we have seen a repeat of this gas outage just a month after the first incident and residents will want assurances that these problems will be mitigated going forward.
“SGN deserve praise for keeping customers regularly updated and for increasing the compensation payments which is a kind gesture to residents.”
