Philippe Martin visits GRTgaz


French Minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy, visits GRTgaz’s national dispatching centre

On Friday, 7 February, the Minister for Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy visited the national dispatching centre of GRTgaz.

GRTgaz’s mission is to ensure the daily balance of gas inflow and outflow on its transport network covering most of the national territory. Standing inside the gas-flow control room, GRTgaz CEO Thierry Trouvé introduced the minister to the operational steering, maintenance and surveillance conditions of the transport network. 

Philippe Martin praised the GRTgaz teams for their commitment and professional approach to ensure ongoing gas supply 24h a day, 365 days a year, including during cold spells, thus making a vital contribution to safeguarding the country’s supply.

The minister also took notice of the modifications that GRTgaz has undertaken in order for its installations to fulfil their role in energy transition, for instance by favouring the development of renewable gas in France (biomethane, power-to-gas...).
