IF the gas supply can be turned off at a shutoff valve or the gas meter - 1/2 to 1 hour labor for a single unit - up to several hours if entire building has to be shut off because gas appliances in all units have to be accessed with the super and shut off, then after the replacement is done checked for leaks and any standing pilots relit.

IF this is the primary regulator for the house, so is regulating the main gas supply to the unit, AND there is no gas shutoff valve on the incoming line just before the regulator, then can run 1-3 hours depending on how much the utility workers milk the job - I have seen a 5 man ConEd crew fiddle around for 4 hours doing a 20 minute line pinch and replacement, for example.
