Fuel Payment Methods
Rather than having to pay large fuel bills all in one go many fuel companies have schemes to spread the cost. These include monthly or quarterly direct debit through a bank account or using a pre-payment scheme called PayPoint where payments can be made at a local PayPoint outlet such as a supermarket.
Fuel suppliers such as oil and gas companies and Northern Ireland Electricity can advise on their methods of payment. Just phone your fuel supplier. Useful contacts details are:
NIE Customer Helpline; Telephone 08457 455455 or visit www.nieenergy.co.uk.

Firmus Gas, tel. 08456 05 00 88, www.firmusenergy.co.uk
It is always best to contact the fuel company in the first instance if there are problems paying for fuel. Advice agencies are good sources of help for anyone who gets into debt.
