Quantities of natural gas transported

Raw data, i.e. not corrected for weather vagaries

The quantities of natural gas transported by GRTgaz are calculated:

  • either as the sum of inputs into the network (LNG terminals, other transmission networks, storage extraction),
  • or as the sum of the outputs from the network (other transmission networks, consumption, injections into storage).
Period 2016 2015 2016/2015
Inputs into the GRTgaz network
LNG terminals 79.5 TWh 64.9 TWh + 22.4%
From other transmission networks 452.9 TWh 444.4 TWh + 1.9 %
Storage extraction 84.7 TWh 80.7 TWh + 5.0 %
Outputs from the GRTgaz network
To other transmission networks 72.7 TWh 88.4 TWh - 17.8 %
Consumption
(3)
465.3 TWh 423.2 TWh + 9.9 %
Storage injections 79.1 TWh 78.3 TWh + 1.1 %
Total quantities transported 617.1 TWh 589.9 TWh + 4.6 %
3- These are quantities consumed by the large consumers connected directly to the GRTgaz network, by consumers connected to the public distribution networks
supplied by GRTgaz and by GRTgaz itself for its own needs, in particular the operation of its compression stations.
