This graph presents the evolution of investments made by the two natural gas transmission operators in France.


The establishment of the TRF (Trading Region France), a liquid market zone interconnected with the European market, required several investments in the gas transmission network until 2018.

Now, the amounts invested are mainly allocated to the development of the principal network, to reinforce the infrastructures safety, and to renew obsolescent facilities.

All these investments are subject to the approval of the French Energy Regulatory Commission (“Commission de Régulation de l'Énergie”). Every year, the Transmission System Operators publish their ten-year investment plan.
