General missions

One of the leading European operators in natural gas transmission

Monitoring operation in the compression zone
 

The longest high-pressure transmission network in Europe

GRTgaz owns and operates the longest high-pressure natural gas transmission network in Europe. It is involved in the management of networks in Germany. In Europe and worldwide, it provides assessment and consulting services in the field of gas transmission.

 

Safety, competitiveness, reliability

GRTgaz performs three main roles:

  • It transports natural gas on behalf of its customers, ensuring optimum safety, cost and reliability.
  • It delivers gas to recipients directly connected to the transmission network: major industrial users, power plants that use natural gas to produce electricity, public distribution networks and neighbouring transmission networks.
  • It expands its transmission capacity in order to meet market demand and enhance security of supply for France and Europe.
 

At the heart of European gas flows

GRTgaz's network is one of the most interconnected in Europe.

  • It carries throughout France and to neighbouring countries the natural gas produced in the Netherlands, Norway and Russia, or imported from around the world in liquefied form (LNG).
  • It facilitates gas trading on a Europe-wide scale.
  • In so doing, it contributes to security of supply for France and Europe.
  • It helps to build an open and competitive European natural gas market for the benefit of end users.
 

Becoming Europe's natural gas operator of choice

GRTgaz's ambition is to become the European natural gas transmission operator of choice by offering the safest and best transmission services, and to make France the leading gas trading hub in Europe.
