Not been on for long while, so hello again, but just walked in and got a call, person had gas leak, whilst being repaired they tested gas meter and had. 230v from live to gas meter. Disconnected sup bonding and still had 230.
It’s TT system, anyone came across before.

I’m trying to work out why gas board won’t re-connect. I’ll have to go have a look but not free for few days, I believe now they only used volt pen.

Haven’t been yet, but do know it has RCD.
My guess is line to earth short, supplementary and main bonding in place. Massively high Ze (or Ra?) or faulty RCD.
Also Have seen voltage on the supply side of the gas meter before only present when meter disconnected must have been backfed from someone else’s bonding. Sorted with a quick bond from internal pipe work to the supply pipe before the Flexi.

It should have 230v between live and it, I can't see what the problem is here. Tell then to stick to their own job they are clearly clueless
 
Don't see how any of this is relevant. They are saying 230v between line and something at earth potential.
Although a volt pen is mentioned - is there just a slight confusion of wording and the gas folk are actually saying their volt pen showed 230v on the metalwork of the meter?

Jesus Christ a volt pen, how very professional of them.
Obviously they know what they are doing
How does a volt pen show 230 v?

My Fluke Volt stick has a sensitivity of 200 - 1000V.

My Fluke Volt stick has a sensitivity of 200 - 1000V.
And it tells you by a numerical value the voltage does it?
My pen goes off when I take it out of my pocket so my point was it’s not a very professional way of deducing the voltage present is it?
