Press Release
  23 July 2013

European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas publishes its Capacity Map 2013 and, in cooperation with GIE, also the System Development Map 2012

(Brussels, 23 July 2013) The European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG), in cooperation with Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE), has published the third edition of the map dedicated to system development matters and covering the year 2012. At the same time, ENTSOG releases the 2013 edition of its capacity map and GIE publishes the revised 2013 edition of its storage and LNG maps.

Through these maps, ENTSOG and GIE, together with their respective members, go beyond the day-to-day transparency and further contribute to the analysis of the dynamics of the European gas market.

The new edition of the System Development Map provides a graphical representation of infrastructure projects considered by ENTSOG in its TYNDP 2013-2022 assessment of the infrastructure-related market integration as well as of demand and supply developments in 2012.

Vittorio Musazzi, ENTSOG General Manager, said: “The launch of the System Development Map last year was greatly appreciated by stakeholders and we hope they will also like this new edition.

Abel Enriquez, GIE Executive Secretary, said: “ENTSOG and GIE members remain committed to increased transparency. This year, GIE has also launched new initiatives to improve transparency of data to the public. It is not only about the data themselves but also about the picture they represent and we will be happy to receive further feedback on the way to present meaningful information.

ENTSOG and GIE are committed to further enhance the map features in the future and welcome feedback on this from stakeholders.


The maps are available for download at and
