Val de Saône: green light for the single zone on November 1st, 2018

 
 

The Val de Saône pipeline, which will allow the supply of an additional 250 GWh/d of gas from the North to the South of France, will be operational on November 1st, 2018, as scheduled.

Since March 2017, a 190-km-long pipeline of 1.20 m diameter between the cities of Etrez (Ain) and Voisines (Haute-Marne) and an interconnection station in Etrez have been built. In addition, an existing compressor station has been reinforced and two interconnection stations, located in Palleau (Saône-et-Loire) and Voisines, have been adjusted.

The Val de Saône (GRTgaz) and Gascogne Midi (Teréga and GRTgaz) programs, approved by the CRE on May 7th, 2014, are the foundations of the single zone. Furthermore, both TSOs developed contractual mechanisms in co-construction along with the market at an optimized cost.

From now on, the teams of both TSOs will be working on the latest IT tests, final trials and system settings while regularly keeping the actors of the market updated.

Therefore, all lights are green for the implementation of the TRF (Trading Region France) and its PEG, the single Virtual Trading Point in France, on November 1st, 2018. For end users, this implementation will have several benefits:
  • a single price of gas,
  • a more competitive, liquid and dynamic French market better interconnected with the main European and world marketplaces,
  • a reinforced security of supply in France.
