Gaz de France to appeal against access refusal into Spanish network

Jul 31, 2001 02:00 AM

Gaz de France (GdF) said it is studying ways of appealing against a refusal by Gas Natural's Enagas to grant it access to Spain's pipe network. Enagas refused access on the grounds that the French market is not sufficiently open and pipe links between France and Spain are poor, GdF said.
GdF applied for access rights in February to fulfil energy contracts signed with Renault and Solvay. Enagas' decision has the support of Spanish energy regulator the CNE and is based on France's failure to implement EU directives on reciprocal links.

A GdF spokesman said although there is no law to support the directive, the company has implemented it strictly since the Aug 10, 2000 deadline set down by the EU and that the French market is well and truly open to competition. He said GdF has lost 10 % in volume sales to clients free to select their supplier since that date.
