Lattice Group plc was a leading British gas transmission business. It was listed on the London Stock Exchange and was a constituent of the FTSE 100 Index.

History[edit]

The Company was established in 2000 when BG Group demerged its UK gas transmission business, formerly known as Transco, and named it Lattice Group.[2]

In October 2002 Lattice Group merged with National Grid plc to form National Grid Transco (although in 2005 the merged entity reverted to the name National Grid plc).[2]

Operations[edit]

As well as the UK gas transmission network, Lattice Group owned a telecoms business known as 186k.[1]
