10-year development

Framework for the Ten Year Development plan for the GRTgaz Transmission Network.

The French Energy Code has transposed the European directive and regulations that define access conditions for gas infrastructures and the common rules applicable to the internal EU natural gas market into French law. In this context, every year, GRTgaz issues a ten year development plan for its gas transmission network in France(1), which it files with the CRE (French energy regulating commission) for examination.

GRTgaz’s ten year development plan is now defined in the framework of both the European and the French energy policies. This reflects the obligations of transmission operators in terms of the security of supply. GRTgaz’s ten year plan takes into account the requirements and projects of stakeholders, whether national, supranational or European.

It is based on the offer and demand for existing gas and reasonable gas infrastructure development forecasts for the medium term, as well as consumption and international trade.
