Last home straight to the single market area

The establishment of the single gas market in France, the Trading Region France (TRF), is progressing quickly both as regards the infrastructure and adaptation of the offering to reflect the considered investments made.

Regarding the infrastructure, GRTgaz is publishing the new progress report for the Val de Saône programme. The southern section (Palleau-Etrez, packages 0,1,2) is already in service. The northern section (Palleau-Voisines, packages 3,4,5) is now complete: the last weld to connect the pipe to the Palleau site was made on 4 July. The work is proceeding according to the schedule established and will go into service on 1 November 2018.

As regards, the complementary mechanisms needed for the smooth operation of the future TRF, GRTgaz and Teréga and are now in the operational deployment phase. On 4 June, the 2 transmission companies organised a first training workshop for customers to allow everyone to understand the operational changes taking place on 1 November. Other initiatives for customers are planned in the autumn as the changes to the information systems are implemented.
