Gas Infrastructure Europe publishes the System Development Map 2013 in cooperation with the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG)


Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE), in cooperation with the European Network of Transmission System Operators for Gas (ENTSOG), has published the fourth edition of the map illustrating the development of gas supply, demand and infrastructure over 2013 and the first quarter of 2014.


Based on feedback received on the previous editions, the new map covers additional information such as the daily profile of supply. Graphical layout has also been improved in order to bring more clarity to the information.


Thierry Deschuyteneer, GIE Executive Secretary, said: ”Infrastructure operators are committed to offer useful information to stakeholders and the new System Development Map is a good example of this. Over the last years it has become a reference.”


Vittorio Musazzi, ENTSOG General Manager, said, “The System Development Map, like the Seasonal Reviews, inform about the last supply and demand trends. I hope that this fourth edition will continue to be useful to the market and institutions for their analysis.


GIE and ENTSOG are committed to further enhancing the information provided on the map in the future and welcome feedback from stakeholders.


The map is available for download on the GIE and ENTSOG website.
