GIE publishes its investment survey on the occasion of its 10th Anniversary

 

Coinciding with the celebration of its 10th anniversary, GIE has released the results of its internal investment survey which show the level of investment made during the last 5 years by 50 gas infrastructure operators in Europe.

 

Ten years ago, gas transmission operators, gas storage operators and LNG terminal operators got together within what is now GIE to continuously exchange ideas and discuss the development of the European gas market with EU policymakers, EU regulators and other European stakeholders.

 


On 13 December, GIE was pleased to welcome almost 200 representatives from the EU institutions, EU regulators and gas industry to its 10th anniversary event. Director General for Energy at the European Commission, Mr Philip Lowe, joined GIE at this event and delivered the keynote speech.

 

Jean-Claude Depail, GIE President, said:"Looking back ten years, it is easy to realize that the gas infrastructure industry has experienced huge changes within the European gas market. However, I am sure that still more challenges are ahead of us. If there is a lesson that we can take from the past, it is that changes are accelerating at the European level. Things are moving faster and faster and we have to get ready for that. Up to now, I can say with satisfaction that GIE has been able to adapt to the changing priorities of the policymakers".

 

The significant investments made by GIE members during the last 5 years constitute one of the proofs of these huge changes, showing that gas infrastructure operators are committed to achieving a truly competitive, sustainable and more secure EU gas market.

 

If policy makers recognise the fundamental role that gas will play in 2050 and beyond, this trend will undoubtedly continue.

 

Evolution of gas infrastructure – The investment survey.

 

The survey gives an overview of the investments in gas infrastructure made between 2007 and 2011. The data has been voluntarily provided by 50 GIE members. The survey figures are provided by GIE in an aggregated format per activity: transmission, storage and LNG regasification.
